Sundays often see a lot of crowded at malls because families like to have food outside and malls give them a variety of options at a single place. But yesterday, the crowd at a mall in Mumbai witnessed something really absurd. Vinod Kambli's wife Andrea and Ankit Tiwari's father got into a major altercation. The ex-cricketer's wife alleged that Tiwari's father brushed his hand against her. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Kambli said, “We were at the Game Zone in the mall around 3 pm when my wife caught hold of an old man’s hand. He had deliberately brushed his hand against her and when she caught him in the act, he pushed her away. Minutes later when we were at the food court, two men, who we assume were the man’s sons, tried to attack my wife. When I told them to back off, they told me, ‘You don’t know who we are."
Andrea too added, "I was playing with my children when this guy took the opportunity to rub his hand against me. Maybe he thought nothing would happen because it was crowded. When I caught his hand, I was surprised to see this old man. He appeared embarrassed because I had caught him red-handed. He appeared scared, and said something in Hindi, on the lines that ‘I cannot do something like this. The inappropriate touching ka zamaana is over. Such things should be dealt with strictly." Kambli had even tweeted about the incident after which an officer from Bandra Police Station met him at his residence yesterday around 8, as per the daily.
In his father's defense, Ankur Tiwari revealed to Mumbai Mirror, “My father, a retired bank employee, had accompanied my daughter to the Game Zone. My father told me he spotted Vinod Kambli there, and as he was walking past a woman, he blacked out. My father was disoriented after the attack. He couldn’t believe he had been punched, and that a woman was screaming, accusing him of brushing his hand against her. I asked my father to identify the woman, and we realised she was Kambli’s wife." He also dismissed Kambli's claims about his father misbehaving with Andrea, he said, "He was abusing loudly, cursing everyone around. I asked him to speak to me politely, but he kept pushing me. His wife pushed me too. When I tried calling up the police, he snatched my phone. He even chased a woman to make sure she deleted the video recording from her phone,” Tiwari said. He also added that he and his father filed a complaint at Bangur Nagar Police Station.
Senior Inspector Vinay Bane from Bangur Nagar Police Station told the daily, "We are probing the matter, after which necessary action will be initiated. As of now, a non-cognisable offence has been registered."
