Kondhwa, 30th January 2024: The Pune City Police have registered a case against three individuals—Nadeem Badruddin Sayyed, Atika Nadeem Sayyed, and Badruddin Sayyed—for allegedly attacking Saeeda Iqbal Shaikh, a 21-year-old law student residing in Sunshine Hills Society, Pisoli.
According to the First Information Report (FIR), the incident occurred on January 26, 2024, at 12:30 pm. Saeeda Shaikh and her sister were in the open space of their society when Nadeem Sayyed, standing in the balcony of their flat in A-wing, directed his wife Atika Sayyed to bring water. Shockingly, Nadeem threw the water at Saeeda. Following this, Saeeda called her mother, and in a disturbing turn of events, Nadeem threw a knife in her direction, piercing into Saeeda’s right-hand wrist.
Immediately after the attack, Saeeda and her mother went to the Kondhwa Police Station to file a complaint. Subsequently, they sought medical treatment at Sassoon Hospital for the injuries sustained, including eleven stitches to Saeeda’s right hand.
Saeeda’s mother revealed, “This attack is believed to be an act of revenge against the victim’s mother, a well-respected advocate who had previously filed two FIRs against the accused.” The cases, registered at Kondhwa Police Station with FIR numbers 828/2022 and 960/2022 under non-bailable sections, have yet to lead to arrests, potentially emboldening the accused in their criminal activities.
Expressing concern over public safety and law enforcement effectiveness, Saeeda’s mother emphasized the severity of the assault. She raised questions about the accused’s known criminal history and the lack of prior arrests despite existing FIRs. The Kondhwa Police Station has not made any arrests in connection with this latest attack, prompting an urgent call for attention and action from higher authorities to ensure justice for the victim and the safety of the community.
The Kondhwa Police have booked the three accused under Sections 324, 504, 504, 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
