“Sana Khan, Ismail Khan and their servant Ramu Kanojia were arrested under IPC sections 354 (assault with intent to outrage modesty), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 34 (common intention) following a complaint by media consultant Poonam Khanna,” Senior Inspector, Amboli Police Station, Ramesh Khadtare said.
They were later produced before a court which granted them bail, the officer said.
According to the police, Sana Khan, who had appeared in Salman Khan starrer Jai Ho and was also a part of Bigg Boss in the year 2012 and her boyfriend Ismail threatened Poonam Khanna on October 21, 2014 over a newspaper article.
Poonam Khanna alleged that they twisted her hands and touched her inappropriately. The duo suspected that she had leaked some information to the media which led to publication of the article.
“The incident took place outside a hospital in Andheri. The victim had gone to the hospital for check-up. Ramu approached her and dragged her outside the hospital where Sana and Ismail misbehaved with her and threatened her,” added Police Inspector Ramesh Khadtare.
Poonam Khanna, whose family reportedly has Bollywood links, approached the police yesterday. “She claimed she had to undergo a treatment at the hospital due to health problems and hence she could not register the complaint immediately.” informed Police Inspector Ramesh Khadtare.
The article had questioned the anticipatory bail granted to Sana Khan in a 2013 kidnapping case. In May last year, Sana had been charged with attempted abduction of a fifteen year old girl for rejecting her cousin’s marriage proposal. Neighbouring Navi Mumbai police had arrested Sana’s cousin Naved Khan and his three friends, but Sana secured anticipatory bail.
Co-incidentally, Ismail Khan has also been in the news recently for attacking actor Sahil Khan at a gym over on October 23, 2014.
Sana, Ismail and Sahil were about to enter into a protein supplement business, but Sahil’s delay in signing the contract, allegedly angered Ismail fueling the row.
The incident happened on October 23, 2014, when Sahil Khan, was unexpectedly attacked while he was talking to cricketer Sreesanth at the gym.
Sahil, who has registered a non-cognizable complaint with the Amboli police station on the same day, also claims that he was threatened for his life by Ismail.
Police investigations however revealed that Sahil was supposed to launch a protein supplement BB Boss with Sana Khan and Ismail Khan.
While Ismail had sent the contract to Sahil few days before Diwali, Sahil delayed signing the contract as he disapproved of certain clauses. The cops suspect that Sahil postponing the deal could have angered Ismail, since the project had already seen many delays.
