Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw and his friend were attacked in the early hours of Wednesday in Mumbai after the cricketer denied selfies to some fans in a 5-star hotel.

Shaw’s friend registered a complaint after which the Mumbai police booked eight people for attacking the duo with baseball bats and vandalising their car.

The ugly brawl was caught on camera and videos started doing the rounds on social media.

In the video, Shaw can be seen snatching the baseball bat from a woman while another video shows the same woman shouting at Prithvi, accusing him of hitting them.

According to the complaint filed by Shaw’s friend, two fans approached the cricketer for selfies. The 23-year-old obliged but when the fans demanded more pictures and refused to leave, they had to call the hotel manager who asked the fans to leave.

The fans along with few others waited outside the hotel and chased Shaw and his friends with baseball bats and broke the windshield of their car.

The incident has created a stir on social media and while some fans are supporting Shaw, others are accusing him for the whole fiasco.

Shaw was recently included in the Indian T20I squad after spending years churning out big scores in domestic cricket. The timing of this brawl video might make life difficult for the cricketer.

The police are looking into the matter and those who are accusing the cricketer of wrongdoings, should wait for the whole truth to come out rather than passing judgements based on a few video clips.
