The Juhu police have booked celebrity fashion designer Archana Kochhar, her husband Rajeev, daughter Simran and bouncer Nagma for allegedly assaulting her sister-in-law over property dispute.

In her complaint lodged on May 5, the complainant said that she lives at Juhu Scheme with her husband and son. She claimed that in 2018, her father bequeathed to her a flat located on the second floor of the Saikripa building in Juhu's Azad Nagar. However, her brother, Rajeev, contested the claim, leading to a legal dispute.

On April 28 at around 10.30am, Rajeev and his 25-year-old daughter Simran arrived with his office staff at the said flat and began moving household items, said the complainant. She further said that to stop the shifting, she adamantly sat on a sofa, enraging Rajeev. Asserting that their father had given the house to him, he asked Jaitley to leave the place at once.

The complainant said that subsequently he called Archana, asking her to send Nagma to the flat. The bouncer pulled her hair and even tore her clothes, while threatening her. However, she didn't budge and remained seated on the sofa, said the complainant, adding that the trio kept asking Nagma to continue assaulting her. When a watchman arrived, Rajeev asked him to leave and locked the door from the inside. “I then called 112 for police assistance. When the cops arrived, Rajeev opened the door. The police then took me to the Juhu police station where I filed a complaint,” said Jaitley.

A case has been filed against the quartet under the Indian Penal Code sections 354 (criminal force to a woman with the intent to outrage her modesty), 341 (wrongful restraint), 325 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt) and 34 (common intention).
