Zareen Khan Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee states that “To protect my client Ms. Zareen Khan’s name, image, reputation and dignity from any harm, and also for other willful criminal offences indulged in by my client’s erstwhile Manager Ms. Anjali Atha, my client was constrained to register an F.I.R. today with Khar Police Station. At this juncture, I would only like to state that my client’s name, image and reputation was being openly tarnished by her own erstwhile Manager whom she trusted unconditionally, and as the matter now needs to be investigated further, therefore an F.I.R. was registered in the said matter under Section 509 of Indian Penal Code. A woman’s dignity and reputation is of immense value and cannot be put at risk by anyone by indulging in character assassination, and especially by someone who was your our representative and whom you once trusted blindly. My client has taken this matter with the seriousness it deserves.
