According to Arshi Khan’s advocate Samir Khan who spoke to a prominent news paper in Mumbai on Wednesday evening, the beleaguered model and actress has filed a writ petition in the Bombay High Court against what her advocate termed alleged in-human and defamatory treatment by the Pune police.
Meanwhile, acting on a complaint by Arshi Khan’s lawyers, the Human Rights Commission of India (NHRC) has issued notices to the Pune Police Commissioner, the Sr PI – Pune Crime Branch and an official of a Woman’s Rehab Home in Pune. While NHRC officials refused to officially confirm, sources said the notices were issued on Thursday afternoon. A lawyer speaking on behalf of Arshi Khan said that since the notices are not public yet, as they have been sent in sealed envelopes, officials may not be willing to go on record in the matter. The NHRC is trying to ascertain facts of the case. Once they have the “say” of the police in the matter, both parties could be summoned officially, Arshi Khan’s lawyer told IndiaNewsNetwork.IN.
