Actress Raveena Tandon’s driver was reportedly parking his car in the building premises when the ruckus started outside her house.

The Mumbai Police on Sunday clarified that a false complaint has been filed with the Khar police against actress Raveena Tandon alleging that she was drunk, behaved indecently and assaulted a person.

Sharing a screenshot of the ‘Viral Bhayani’ post on ‘X’, Ms Tandon said that the complainant had filed a false complaint in the matter and after examining the CCTV footage, it was found that Raveena’s car had not hit anyone and she was not drunk.

Speaking to a Mumbai-based daily, Zone 9 Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Rajtilak Roshan said that the complaint was false.

“The complainant has made a false complaint in the alleged video. We have checked the entire CCTV footage of the society and found that the actress’ driver was reversing the car from the road towards the society when this family was crossing the same lane. The family was stopped. The driver was asked to check if there were people behind the car before reversing and an argument started between them,” the DCP said while speaking to the daily newspaper.

As the altercation escalated, Raveena came to the spot to see her driver and tried to save him from the mob. Both of them went to the Khar police station to lodge a complaint but later withdrew the complaint.

“The argument escalated to abuse and actress Raveena Tandon came to the spot to see what had happened to her driver. The actress tried to save the driver from the mob; however, the mob started misbehaving with her. Both Raveena Tandon and family went to Khar Police Station and filed a written complaint and submitted a letter stating that they don’t want to file any complaint,” informed DCP Rajtilak Roshan.

DCP Rajtilak Roshan said that no one was injured in the incident, CCTV footage was checked and the car did not hit anyone and the actress was not drunk.

In another screenshot shared by Raveena in the same post, Mumbai Police mentioned that both parties have denied any complaint on the online portal.

“Tandon’s driver was attempting to reverse the car to stop it, and three members of a family feared they might be hit. Following the argument, all parties left, and police arrived to question Tandon’s workers. Both parties called the police station, denying any complaint,” said Mumbai Police.

The post cites the police statement, which comes after a video of the incident went viral on social media platforms, where Raveena Tandon can be seen requesting people to calm down and ‘don’t hit me’.

A video of the incident is going viral on social media, in which Raveena Tandon can be seen struggling around people who are pushing her and trying to hit her driver.

It states that the police denied the allegations that she and her driver were drunk.

Reportedly, a ruckus broke out outside actress Raveena Tandon’s house last night when her driver was parking the car in the building’s premises.

According to Mumbai Police, a family was passing in front of the building’s gate when the driver was reversing the car. A quarrel broke out between Raveena Tandon’s driver and three women of the family, who thought the car would hit them.

Hearing an argument between her driver and a housemate, Raveena came out of the house but after a lot of fighting, both the parties left the place.

After getting the information, the police reached the spot and questioned Raveena’s staff and called both the parties to the Khar police station.

No one was injured or any vehicle collided in the incident, no complaint has been filed from either side, the police said.
