Mumbai: Actor Saif Ali Khan has been chargesheet by Mumbai police for allegedly assaulting an NRI businessman earlier this year, police said in Mumbai on Friday. "Mumbai's Colaba police station filed a chargesheet against Khan in a metropolitan magistrate court on Thursday," Deputy Commissioner of Police Ravindra Shishwe told reporters in Mumbai on Friday.

"The chargesheet has been filed with regard to a complaint registered against him for assaulting an NRI businessman on February 22," he added. Two of Saif's friends  Bilal Amrohi and actress Amrita Arora's husband Shakeel Ladak have also been named in the chargesheet.

Saif was arrested on February 22 with Amrohi and Ladak for assaulting NRI businessman Iqbal Sharma. They were later released on bail. The incident occurred when Saif, Kareena Kapoor and some others were at the Wasabi Restaurant at the Taj Mahal Hotel. Disturbed by their ruckus, Sharma requested them to keep their voices down. However, this enraged Saif, who allegedly punched Sharma, breaking his nose.

Ladak also allegedly hit Sharma's father-in-law Raman Patel. Later, Sharma lodged a complaint against Saif at Colaba police station. Saif has been booked for assault.
