The Oshiwara police have registered a case of rioting, extortion and criminal intimidation against eight people for allegedly attacking India cricketer Prithvi Shaw and his friends. The police said the incident took place early on Wednesday in a cafe at the Sahara Star hotel after the two people approached Shaw for a selfie. As they allegedly kept harassing him for photos, the duo were escorted outside by the hotel staff. However, they waited for Shaw and allegedly attacked him with a baseball bat. Video clips of the incident went viral on social media by the end of the day. According to the police, the complainant in the case, Ashish Yadav, along with Shaw and Brijesh had gone to the Sahara Star hotel near the domestic airport. When Shaw refused to pose for more pictures, the two allegedly misbehaved with him. As they started getting violent, Yadav sent Shaw in another vehicle. He and Brijesh waited for some time and subsequently left. Yadav later noticed that a car and a few men on motorcycles were following them. The group allegedly stopped their vehicle and started abusing them. The woman had threatened to lodge a false complaint and demanded Rs 50,000. The police, who registered a case on Wednesday, are on the lookout for the suspects. A lawyer representing Sapna Gill said the complete FIR is false, bogus and concocted and they are preparing to file a police complaint against Shaw.
