Kolkata Police on Monday arrested three people for allegedly assaulting the caretaker of Cricketer Mohd Shami's apartment.
The incident occured on Saturday night when a group of young men allegedly threatened and tried to barge into Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami’s residence in South Kolkata’s Katjunagar after an altercation, as per media reports on Monday.
The young men were reportedly seeking revenge over an altercation over a traffic accident, earlier in the night. The 27-year old was returning home with his wife. Shami’s driver was allegedly driving too fast and nearly collided with a local’s motorbike kept near from Shami’s residence, reports said.
Soon an argument broke out between youth and pacer's driver. Shami stepped in and acted as peacemaker. Both parties calmed down and retreated.
However, matters did not end there. The youth reportedly called some of his friends and tried to barge into Shami's residence to extract revenge. The group manhandled the gatekeeper as he stopped them getting in and hurled abuse, the reports said.
Following the incident, Shami’s wife filed an FIR and the police arrested the three accused.
