Zubeen row: Assam police to record statements of Nishita Goswami & Prastuti Parashar
GUWAHATI: Assam Police shall record statements of the two renowned actresses in regard to their being ‘publicly humiliated’ by a youth heartthrob Zubeen Garg, reports said.
According to reports, Assam Director General of Police Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta has taken this step “to protect the dignity of Assamese women.”
Earlier, the Assam State Commission for Women (ASCW) had asked Assam police to probe into the matter. According to reports, the Commission has further sent a copy of its instruction to the DGP, Assam to take necessary action.
Zubeen, while on stage in front of a huge live gathering at the Prag Cine awards, commented on Nishita’s backside.
At the same show, Zubeen, in a state of excitement bumped his chest against actress Prastuti Parashar’s, exclaiming ‘bukuwe bukuwe’ (chest to chest).
Nishita later confessed to Inside Northeast that many of her family members were left humiliated after the ordeal.
“People should maintain decorum in front of such a large audience. There were around 4,000 people at the venue, which is why the person should have been a bit careful with his comments,” the ‘Ratnakar’ star told Inside Northeast.
This is not the first time that Zubeen Garg has drawn flak for his bad behaviour and loose tongue. There have been several incidents when the singer-actor and filmmaker had either abused someone or behaved inappropriately. The singer reportedly turns up at events in an inebriated state and behaves in an unpredictable manner.
