Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan, who was arrested on Wednesday night on charges of assaulting a South African businessman and his father-in-law in a restaurant the night before, is released on bail. His statement was recorded in the case by the Colaba police station. He had to furnish a surety bond of Rs 3000, reports said.

The actor stated, "There was an ugly incident last night where my friends and the ladies with us were abused and I was assaulted. I was hit and I defended myself. I have been to the police station to answer the requirements of law as I am a law abiding citizen. I have also filed a complaint about what happened last night and I am confident justice will be done."

Khan further added, "I have seen the interviews given on TV and they look like decent people and I cannot believe that the same people were so aggressive the night before and the lies that they are saying about me with such straight faces. I think they have the CCTV footage in the restaurant that will prove everything. I hope the media is able to remain impartial while the matter is being decided. I don't think any gentleman would have behaved differently."
