Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's niece has filed a sexual harassment case against a man she has identified as her uncle in her police complaint.
"I have filed a complaint about sexual harassment by my uncle when I was nine years old. My parents were divorced when I was two years old, so I had a stepmother. I was tortured a lot. As a child I didn't understand thinking it was my uncle, but when I grew up I realized it was a different kind of touch. There was violence too," the Times Of India quoted the niece as a saying.
In an interview to the daily, she has also alleged that the actor didn’t support her against his brother. She said Nawazuddin’s reaction to her accusation was “chacha hai, aisa kabhi nahi kar sakte (he is your uncle, he can’t do this).
According to the publication, the complaint was filed at Jamia police station in Delhi.
Sharing a news report link, Nawazuddin's estranged wife Aaliya took to Twitter, saying a "lot will be revealed."
"This is just the beginning. Thanking God for sending so much support already. Lot will be revealed, shocking the world as I am not the only one who suffered in silence. Let's see how much of TRUTH money can buy and who all would they continue to BRIBE," Aaliya tweeted.

Who knew about this offence & kept quiet, time will tell.— AaliyaSiddiqui2020 (@ASiddiqui2020) June 2, 2020
Lets see who is finally punished for CRIME & for NON-REPORTING & Who will be "LET-GO".
Image & Reputation of NONE is more important then life & safety of a child.
SAD. The child had to stand for herself without support.
Children need care & support. No one should take advantage of any helpless child. I am happy to know that every person who has information of child abuse is punished for failing to report the offence.— AaliyaSiddiqui2020 (@ASiddiqui2020) June 2, 2020
Non-reporting of cases to protect image of person or family is a bigger crime.
The new controversy has erupted days after Aaliya sent Nawazuddin a legal notice demanding a divorce and maintenance from the actor. Aaliya had claimed that Nawazuddin's family had subjected her to physical and emotional abuse during their marriage.
Nawazuddin and Aaliya got married in 2009.
