The complainant's lawyer Ali Kaashif Khan was arrested by Oshiwara police on 3 June, after the woman claimed that she was attacked by two motorcycle-borne men on 25 May.

According to the complaint filed by the woman, two persons riding a motorcycle attacked her with a sharp object and threatened to throw acid on her face.

Before leaving the spot, the attackers had hurled a chit with the message "take the case back", police officials said.

The woman had filed a case against the actor for raping her under the pretext of marriage and blackmailing her for money with her video clips.

He was sent to 14 days of judicial custody by an Andheri court in connection with the case. On 7 June, the Bombay High Court granted bail to the television actor, but was made to pay a fine of Rs 50,000.
