MUMBAI: Saif Ali Khan issued an official statement about the assault issue. Here it is:

“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”

Mumbai: A case of assault has been registered against actor Saif Ali Khan on the basis of a complaint filed a man who accused Khan and his aides of breaking his nose after a scuffle inside the Taj Hotel here.
According to sources, the Mumbai police will question Khan for the alleged assault and decide whether to arrest him depending on what comes out in the probe.
Khan was said to be accompanied by his girlfriend and actress Kareena Kapoor at the time of the incident. Kareena’s statement could also be recorded.
The case was registered on Tuesday night under section 325, read with 34 of the Indian Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt.
The complaint was filed by a person named Sharma. He said Khan along with Kapoor and other friends was having dinner at the Wasabi Restaurant in the Taj Hotel. Sharma, a resident of Juhu was also having dinner with his family at the adjoining table.
His complaint to Khan about the noise at their table apparently led to a heated argument and a scuffle. Khan allegedly told him to go to a library if he wanted peace and quiet.
Sharma said Saif and his two associates allegedly rained blows upon him fracturing his nose. Khan is gearing up for his spy thriller Agent Vinod which will hit the theatres on March 23.
