Zaidi said that the court has stayed the arrest of Nawazuddin, his two brothers Fayazuddin and Ayazuddin and mother Mehrunnisa. However, his third brother Munajuddin did not get relief from the court.
His wife Alia, who is separated from Nawazuddin, filed a complaint against these people on July 27, accusing the actor, his three brothers and mother of assaulting him in 2012 and molesting the minor girl of the family.
