Saif Ali Khan is in news for the 2012 assault case whereby the actor was accused of hitting an NRI. While, Saif remained absent at the hearing held yesterday, the Court has granted a last chance to the actor to be present at the next hearing.
Saif Ali Khan along with two friends allegedly assaulted one NRI Iqbal Sharma and his father-in-law on February 22nd, 2012. The case is still in process and Saif Ali Khan's repeated absence at the hearings apparently made the Court very disappointed.
Saif Ali Khan was supposed to attend the hearing on Monday but he gave it a miss and the actor's lawyer filed an exemption application stating that Saif is currently abroad for an ad film's shoot.
Meanwhile, the prosecutor not only objected to the application but also demanded that a warrant be issued against Saif Ali Khan. While, the next hearing is on June 18th, the Court stated that if Saif fails to be present at the next hearing of the case, a warrant is likely to be issued against him.
It is to be recalled, Saif Ali Khan along with his two friends Bilal Amrohi and Shakkel Ladak were arrested after a case was filed by the NRI alleging assault at a restaurant in Taj Hotel.
The complaint stated that Saif and his friends punched the NRI and fractured his nose while, they also assaulted his father-in-law when he objected to Saif's loud voice at the restaurant. Saif and his friends pleaded innocence and were later released on bail.
Saif Ali Khan claimed that the brawl started after the NRI made abusive comments on Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor who were also accompanying them at the restaurant.
