She said she felt “uncomfortable” by the “dirty, nasty looks” of the cricketer and told her fiancee that he can have drinks with him if he wishes.
“We came up to our room, and I thought to leave the guys alone and walked towards my bedroom, this guy caught hold of me and tried to molest me. My fiance tried to stop him,” she said.
“When I tried to turn around and go to my room, he grabbed my hand and tried to kiss me. My fiancee said ‘listen, she is not any girl like that. Just leave and go back to your room’,” she said.
At this, the player turned around and started beating him up several times and punched him on his face, she alleged.
“He got injured in his ears. He is not able to hear properly. He was bleeding,” she said.
She said the IPL player was talking to her fianc‚e, saying that he wants to have few drinks with us.
“Then we left for our room and we thought he had gone to his room but he came upstairs tagging along with us. He asked us to help him around and telling my fiancee that lets go and have drinks,” she said. (ANI)
