Readers may know of the road accident that had taken place in September last year, for which actress Bhagyashree was booked by the Santacruz police authorities. She got booked based on a complaint lodged by the Santacruz resident Mohammed Nausif Shaikh. In his complaint, Shaikh had stated that during November last year, when he had been riding on his bike from Khar subway to Link Road, he had stopped at a signal on SV Road in Santacruz. That’s when his bike got knocked by a speeding white Skoda car, which had jumped the red signal. The car not only injured his left leg, but had also fled away from the spot. After that, Nausif Shaikh managed to reach Asha Parekh hospital in an auto rickshaw, all on his own.
He claimed that he went to hospital alone in an auto rickshaw, where he was visited by Bhagyashree’s husband Himalaya Dasani and his associate Raj Kishan. They allegedly promised to bear his medical expenses and requested him not to lodge a police complaint against Bhagyashree, states the FIR. Shaikh told the police that Dasani had admitted that Bhagyashree was driving the car.
reported yesterday that the police has not made any progress in the case and didn’t record the statements of those concerned in the case.
Meanwhile, Dasani rubbished the allegations and claimed Shaikh was trying to blackmail them and extort money.
Senior Inspector Shantanu Pawar said, “Police are not delaying the probe and are conducting a fair investigation. The incident was not captured on CCTV camera, so we are not sure who was actually behind the wheel. We are trying to trace witnesses who can tell us what had actually happened that day. Investigation is being carried out as per the FIR.”
“We are collecting evidence in the case, and if any evidence is found then lawful action will be taken accordingly,” added DCP (Zone IX) Satyanarayan Chaudhary.
