In response, Sanjeeda’s lawyers have filed a petition seeking to quash Zakerabanu’s FIR, which counter-alleged that Zakerabanu had a disturbed relationship with her father due to his orthodox attitude, which adversely affected her equation with her husband, Anas, and made it difficult for her to adjust in the more liberal environment of her marital home. It further stated that on the day of the alleged incident, Zakerabanu informed Anas that she was not well and that she had quit the makeup institute that she was training early to leave for her parents’ house. Sanjeeda had been shooting for her daily soap at the time of the alleged incident.

The latest development in the case brought interim relief for Sanjeeda on August 30, when the Ahmedabad High Court waived the service of notice.

Sanjeeda’s lawyer Sunny Punamiya told Mirror, “The Hon’ble Court has passed an order in favour of my client by stating that the investigating agency should not take any coercive steps against her. In other words, the Hon’ble Court accepted our submission that the FIR is baseless, bad in jurisdiction and merely filed to harass my client.”
