Actress Amisha Patel had a tryst with the legal system around Diwali this year.
Amisha’s uncle Nalin Rajni Patel submitted an application on November 25 to Deccan Gymkhana police, claiming that his niece allegedly opened their flat at Manali Apartments with a duplicate key, which was in her possession. The police said they have received the application and are verifying it.
Nalin claimed that after opening the apartment illegally, Amisha stole some domestic articles from the apartment, owned jointly by his brother Sunil and him. Both of them were in Nasik when the incident happened in Pune.
According to Nalin, the incident came to light after his brother received a telephone call from their domestic help on November 24. The help informed them that some persons opened the locked door and took away some articles.
“When I inquired with the society watchman, I learnt that one of them was Amisha,” said Nalin.
Nalin is disappointed with the Deccan police for failing to register an FIR against the actress, while trying to pass off the incident as a civil matter.
“A criminal complaint needs to be lodged for theft and trespassing against Amisha for her act and our application should not be dismissed as a civil matter,” he said. When asked about the ownership of the flat, Nalin added, “The flat was in the name of my late mother Sushila, who executed a bonafide registered gift deed in Sunil’s and my name in 2007.”
Amisha refused to answer her phone when tried contacting her. Later, in response to an SMS, she said, “I have been advised by my lawyers not to comment, as the matter is subjudice. Thanks.”
