Sooraj Pancholi‘s father, Aditya Pancholi was charged with assault due to an incident outside a nightclub in Mumbai in the year 2015. The actor allegedly assaulted a bouncer of the club with his cell phone and was arrested for the same. Police reports suggest that Pancholi was under heavy influence of alcohol and the alleged assault was caused due to an issue of music being played by the DJ in the club. However, Pancholi was released from lock-up after he paid the bail amount of Rs. 50, 000. The actor was facing legal trial ever since.
However, the legal trial of the case has come to an end with Pancholi being acquitted by the Bandra Metropolitan Court due to lack of evidence. The court observed that the pieces of evidence produced during the two-year term of the case were not concrete enough to prove the guilt. Hence the magistrate dropped the charges under section 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) and section 504 (intentional insult) as filed against Aditya Pancholi by the police.
