Earlier, Saif Ali Khan had admitted that he had hit Iqbal Sharma, but he had claimed that it was Iqbal who hit him on his eye first. The actor had stated that the NRI businessman abused the women with him with slangs and attacked him later. So he hit him back in an act of self defence, added Saif.
But investigation reports of the Colaba police reveal that Saif Ali Khan and his friends first attacked the NRI businessman. Police Office Vinod Sawant said, “The staff at Taj told us that Saif and his two friends Shakeel Ladak and producer Bilal Amrohi hit the complainant. They also confirmed that Saif attacked the complainant first."
When asked about whether Saif was under the influence of alcohol, the police officer stated, “The bill came to Rs 60,000 and they ordered one peg of whisky. But we don"t know if they were already drunk before coming to the Taj." He added, “Our investigations are on and we have enough evidence. I don"t want to reveal anything right now."
