Actor and ex Bigg Boss contestant Ajaz Khan was arrested on November 19 for reportedly sending obscene pictures and messages to hairstylist Aishwarya Chaubey. He was later released on a bail of Rs10,000 by a Borivali court. According to the case registered at the Malvani police station on November 15, Ajaz had sent objectionable photos to her on WhatsApp.
Ajaz denies that he was arrested for sending obscene pictures and objectionable messages. “This is harassment. She has done this earlier with Salman Khan as well. But she didn’t get attention as it was Salman bhai,” he says.
Aishwarya told Hindustan Times in June that she met Ajaz, who was seen in the seventh season of Bigg Boss, in April this year.
“I know Ajaz is not a star but neither am I a big name. When I came to Mumbai, a friend told me that he (Ajaz) is a good person and advised me to stay in touch as he could suggest some work for me. I would have never stayed in touch had I not thought we were friends,” she had said.
She alleged that things took a different turn soon after their first meeting and she received vulgar pictures just 10-15 days later.
Ask him about the lewd photos that he allegedly sent to her and Ajaz says, “If I was wrong, I wouldn’t have got bail. I submitted my phone as proof, but she didn’t submit hers as it had a morphed photo. My lawyer had kept the paperwork ready. I gave proof of my innocence. I got bail instantly.”
Ajaz claims he was friendly with her and they would chat normally. “What she’s claiming is not true. Women misuse their power to make complaints against men of such (sexual) nature. Once a girl makes a complaint against a man, he has to prove his innocence.”
Aziz is also unhappy that the media didn’t check the facts with him. “The media should have called me, but no one bothered. They put out breaking news saying that I was arrested. I was not arrested. I haven’t done anything, so why will I hide? I would like to sue her for defamation. I also don’t want to give her so much importance or make her famous.”
