New Delhi: Actress Sana Khan and her boyfriend Ismail Khan were arrested today by Mumbai Police in an assault case.
The arrest was followed after a woman charged them with molestation and criminal intimidation, police said today.
“Actress Sana Khan and her boyfriend Ismail Khan were arrested under IPC sections 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) following a complaint by a woman, named Poonam Khanna,” said Amboli police station's senior inspector Ramesh Khadtare.
The ‘Jai Ho' actress Sana and her boyfriend Ismail Khan had on October 21 allegedly twisted the hands of the victim, touched her inappropriately and threatened her over an article which appeared in a newspaper last week.
The duo suspected that Khanna had leaked an information to the media because of which the article, which was against the two, had been published in the newspaper.
The incident had occurred in the accused's vehicle outside a hospital in suburban Andheri.
Meanwhile "Style" actor Sahil Khan also on Tuesday alleged that he was assaulted by actress Sana's beau Ismail Khan at a gym in Mumbai.
The incident took place on Oct 22nd and Sahil registered a complaint with the Amboli police station on the same day.
"Investigation is going on, can't reveal anything right now," an official from Amboli told IANS.
According to Sahil, Ismail attacked him alleging that he gave wrong news about Sana to the press.
"On Oct 22nd, I was gymming when Ismail attacked me. I didn't know how to react because I didn't know why he started hitting me. He started saying that you are jealous of Sana and you are the one who has given wrong stories about her to the press," Sahil told IANS.
"Actually few days back, some stories about her and Ismail Khan's fake passports had come out. I have got nothing to do with these reports. I don't know why he dragged me into all this," he added.
Sahil also claims that he was threatened for his life by Ismail.
