Bollywood starlet Huma Khan, who has been charged with allegedly torturing her maid's 12-year-old daughter, has suffered a nervous breakdown and is currently undergoing psychiatric treatment.
According to the police, soon after her arrest last week, the actor informed them that she was on medication and also suffered from insomnia. Accordingly, following her arrest, the Mira Road police referred to the state-run JJ Hospital in Byculla for Khan's assessment and treatment.
The police said that after they arrested Khan on charges of kidnapping and assault, they found that the actor has been taking certain injections frequently and the constant pricking of needles has resulted in an infection on her body. These injections are used for treating weakening bones (osteoporosis) in post-menopausal women and men who are at high risk for having fractures or have had fractures.
According to the police, Khan has been seeking psychiatric treatment for several years now. Since she wanted to make a comeback in Bollywood, she was also starving herself to get back into good shape. Presently, Huma Khan is lodged in Kalyan jail from where she is regularly taken to the JJ Hospital out-patient department for check-ups.
