A well-known TV actor, Abhimanyu Chaudhary, has been arrested by Mumbai police for attacking his own hairstylist with a knife. The injured hairstylist has been taken to the hospital for treatment and is known to be out of danger. "We have arrested Abhimanyu and his friend and have registered a case against the duo and their woman friend who had called them to the salon," said a senior police inspector of Mumbai Police.
According to a report on NDTV, on May 16, one of Abhimanyu's woman friend called him to come to the salon after one of the employees of the salon allegedly touched her inappropriately. The actor, along with his friend, reached the salon in Lokhandwala and started beating the employee. They also allegedly attacked him with a knife. In the CCTV footage, the actor along with his friend can be seen beating the employee. The footage also shows another woman employee getting hurt during the brawl.
According to the police official, a complaint has been lodged against the salon employee based on the complaint filed by Abhimanyu's friend. "Both of them have been arrested under sections 354, and 324 and 326 of the Indian Penal Code. To retaliate, it seems that Abhimanyu’s friend has also filed a complaint against the employee after four days. However, cops couldn’t arrest him since he has been admitted in the hospital but they have booked him under section 354 of IPC," the police officer added.
