Alleging racisit remarks by a foreign lady, former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli filed a complaint on Friday.

The action was taken by Kambli against a foreign lady for making a racist comment against him over a carparking dispute in the housing society where he lives.

According to Kambli, "At around 8:15 p.m. on Thursday, he had an argument with a lady residing in the Jewel Co-operative Housing Society building. The argument started over a parking issue. He alleged that during the argument the lady called him a "Bully", which means "Black Indian". 

"I felt very bad after hearing the word "Black Indian". According to the law, no action can be taken against a woman at night. But, they (the police) assured me that they will take action in the morning. I think this is an abuse to Indians. We welcome our guests here, and, they speak to us like this," he added.

The Bandra Police station has accepted Kambli's complaint and has assured that it will carry out an investigation against the foreign lady on Friday.
