Meera Syal - Syal's Daughter Cleared Of Glass Attack

The daughter of British actress Meera Syal has been cleared of allegations she attacked a male model with a glass at a friend's birthday party.
Chameli Bhatia, 19, faced a charge of actual bodily harm after she was accused of wounding ­schoolmate Christian Pannell, who needed 14 stitches to treat cuts to his face.
Bhatia insisted the incident was an accident, and on Thursday (03Nov11), she was found not guilty of attacking Pannell.
Syal, famous for her comedy roles on U.K. TV, wept with relief when she heard the news in London's Snaresbrook crown court, and told reporters afterwards, "We always believed in her innocence.”
