India cricketer Prithvi Shaw has been filmed getting involved in a physical fight with a woman on the streets of Mumbai. While a few reports have suggested that the scuffle broke out when these fans tried to take selfies with the cricketer, there has been nothing said from either party. However, in the video going viral on social media, the woman, Sapna Gill is alleging that Shaw and his friends beat her while they were partying at a club.
The man filming the video also claimed that he has proof of Shaw attacking the woman. Meanwhile, in one of the clips shared online, Shaw is seen pushing and shoving Sapna while she tried to defend her.
According to the police complaint, both parties first engaged in an argument over selfies but it soon turned into a fight with a baseball bat and a car chase in Mumbai. Eight people were named in the police case for allegedly assaulting Shaw and his friend, breaking the windshield of their car and demanding Rs 50,000.
Two complainants who have been identified as Shobhit Thakur and Sana or Sapna Gill, have refused the charges and even accused Shaw of assaulting them first, according to the reports.
"Oshiwara Police has registered a case against 8 persons over an alleged attack on the car of a friend of Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw after Shaw refused to take a selfie for the second time with two people," Mumbai Police was quoted as saying by ANI.
