- Zakerabanu was reportedly hospitalised in Ahmedabad
- Zakerabanu filed an FIR on May 29 at Sarkhej Police Station
- Sanjeeda Sheikh's family has reportedly filed a petition against the FIR
Sanjeeda Sheikh's family has now reportedly filed a petition against the FIR with the Ahmedabad High Court. They alleged that Zakerabanu had a disturbed relationship with her father, who has an orthodox attitude and hence found it difficult to adjust to the 'liberal environment' at her marital home, reported Mumbai Mirror.
The petition filed by Sanjeeda's family also states that on the day of the incident the actress was not home and Zakerabanu told her husband Anas that she was going to her parents' house as she was unwell, reported Mumbai Mirror.
On August 30, Sanjeeda Sheikh was granted interim relief in the case as the Ahmedabad High Court waived the service of the notice. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Sanjeeda's lawyer Sunny Punamiya said, "The Hon'ble Court has passed an order in favour of my client by stating that the investigating agency should not take any coercive steps against her. In other words, the Hon'ble Court accepted our submission that the FIR is baseless, bad in jurisdiction and merely filed to harass my client."
Sanjeeda Sheikh made her acting debut in 2005 with TV series Kyaa Hoga Nimmo Kaa. She has participated in the popular dance reality show, Nach Baliye twice.
Sanjeeda is currently seen in the show Love Ka Hai Intezaar as Kamini Mathur.
