Nawazuddin Siddiqui finally reacts on niece’s sexual harassment allegations
Earlier, Nawazuddin’s niece said, “Nawaz bade papa called on Tuesday night and said ‘you’re like my daughter, you know how much I love you. Unhone yeh bhi bola ki unko yeh sab pata nahi tha’ and that he’s there for any help I need. He has never spoken to me in all these years. The entire family had boycotted me after I got married, and they’ve been filing one case after another and threatening my in-laws in Budhana.”
Recalling her horrid childhood days, Nawazuddin’s niece said, “My father didn’t allow me to study beyond class 8. My uncle used to touch me inappropriately. I was 13 then when he tried to sexually exploit me. I told my father (Almas Siddiqui), bade papa and everyone about it, but no one supported me.”
