The family has been harassed since 2010, claims NikunjNikunj Malik, who is currently shooting Revolver Rani and features in Anil Kapoor’s 24, has made a few enemies in her hometown.

Not happy with the decision of the 28-year-old TV actress to join the film industry in Mumbai, her relatives in Faridabad in a khap ruling asked her to give up acting or face death.

On Saturday, Malik filed a complaint at Sector 7 police station in Faridabad against her uncle and got them arrested.

Speaking to Mirror, Malik said, “My uncles and other relatives were against me pursuing a career in Bollywood right from the beginning and have been after my parents to ask me to quit.’’ Malik, who belongs to the Jat community, added, “Our relatives influenced my father, who went against me. It is only my mother who supports me. The relatives threatened my parents with dire consequences if I did not quit films.’’

Malik, who participated in the reality show Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, said, “My parents have been given death threats if they fail to call me back home. They threatened my mother who stood by me in my choice of career. This forced me take action against my relatives.”

Currently in Faridabad, the actress said though she first filed a complaint against her uncle and in July, her family has been harassed since she particpated in Swayamvar in 2010 .

“My mother has recorded the phone threats and when the police heard it, an FIR was filed following which my uncle Mahavir Singh and his son, Amit Mallik, were arrested.’’

Inspector Manoj Kumar of Sector 7 police station in Faridabad said, “We have arrested them for threatening the entire family under sections 323, 452, 506 and 507 of the Indian Penal Code.”

Nikhunj is now more worried about the security of her family.

“They might go on a revenge mode after their arrest. And, you can never criminals. They are very shrewd people,” said Malik.
