The Bombay High Court issued a notice to Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw.
On Thursday, the Bombay High Court issued a notice to cricketer Prithvi Shaw and the city police while seeking their responses to a petition filed by Sapna Gill, a social media influencer, for cancelling an FIR lodged against her for allegedly assaulting and demanding money from the cricketer. The FIR was lodged in the month of February this year when Sapna and her friends got into a fight with Prithvi outside a hotel in suburban Mumbai over taking selfies. Later on, Gill lodged a counter complaint against Prathvi.
On Thursday, a division bench of Justices S. B. Shukre and M. M. Sathaye issued a notice to the police and Shaw on Gill’s plea for cancelling the FIR against her and also posted the matter for hearing in the month of June. Ali Kashif, who is the lawyer for Gill, told the bench that the police were also involved with the Mumbai cricketer and had lodged a fake case against her.
Khan sought a court order directing the police to procure and safeguard CCTV footage from inside the hotel in suburban Andheri to show what exactly happened before the fight started. In the plea, she also sought directions to the police not to file a chargesheet against her in the case.
