Salman Khan’s bodyguard and close confidante for almost 18 years, Shera was booked yesterday on charges of physical assault after a police complaint was filed against him at the DN Nagar police station in Mumbai.
Victim Akhtar Qureshi accused Shera of hitting him with the butt of a pistol after a heated argument Shera had with Qureshi’s friend over the phone on Tuesday, October 25. Shera was later arrested by the DN Nagar police. The celebrity bodyguard, before heading to the police station gave a statement in his defence and said that it was just a verbal argument and not a physical fight.
Speaking exclusively to Times Now, he said, “Nothing happened on Tuesday. I went to meet a friend at Kokilaben Hospital, then I went to Pop Tate’s where I had a verbal argument on the phone, but no physical scuffle. The police came to my house in the morning and now I am accompanying them to the DN Nagar Police Station. I don’t know the details of the charges against me.” According to Times Now, the Arms Act has also been applied against Shera as he allegedly hit the complainant with the butt of a gun. Sections 326, 503 and 504 of the IPC are the other charges that were levied against Shera. Besides Shera, four others are also likely to get arrested.
