Prithvi Shaw Selfie Controversy: Social media influencer Sapna Gill filed a complaint with Mumbai Airport Police Station on Monday (February 20) accusing Prithvi Shaw of ‘outraging her modesty’.
Mumbai: Does not look like there would be a respite for young cricketer Prithvi Shaw anytime soon in the wake of the ‘selfie row’. Social media influencer Sapna Gill filed a complaint with Mumbai Airport Police Station on Monday (February 20) accusing Prithvi Shaw of ‘outraging her modesty’. Her complaint has been registered under sections 34 (criminal act with common intention), 120B (criminal conspiracy), 146 (rioting), 148 (rioting with armed weapons), 149 (unlawful assembly offence committed in prosecution), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons), 351 (use of criminal force), 354 (outrage of modesty) and 509 (advantage of proximity, gesture to outrage modesty) of the Indian Penal code.
Sapna filed the complaint against the swashbuckling opener after she was granted bail by the court. Sapna along with seven others was in custody after being booked for vandalising Prithvi’s friend, Ashish Yadav’s car. The social media influencer also accused the cricketer of inappropriately touching her and pushing her during the scuffle on February 15.
Prithvi and his friend Ashish had lodged a complaint against Sapna of physical assault and damaging their car.
Here is a clip that has gone viral from the night of the incident:
