After being arrested by the Colaba Police (and released on a bail of Rs.3000/-) for allegedly beating-up a diner at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai, and fracturing the person’s nose in the process, actor Saif Ali Khan released an official statement from via Raindrop Media Pvt Ltd:
“There was an ugly incident last night where my friends and the ladies with us were abused and I was assaulted. I was hit and I defended myself. I have been to the police station to answer the requirements of law as I am a law abiding citizen. I have also filed a complaint about what happened last night and I am confident justice will be done.
I have seen the interviews given on TV and they look like decent people and I cannot believe that the same people were so aggressive the night before and the lies that they are saying about me with such straight faces.
I think they have the cc tv footage in the restaurant that will prove everything.
I hope the media is able to remain impartial while the matter is being decided. I don’t think any gentleman would have behaved differently!”
