Mumbai: FIR against Vinod Kambli, wife Andrea for beating up maid

Mumbai (PTI): An FIR has been registered against former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli and his wife following a complaint filed by the couple’s domestic help, police said today.


The Bandra Police filed the FIR yesterday against 43-year-old Kambli and his wife after the complaint by their maid, who alleged that the couple was not paying proper wages to her and when she asked for it, they misbehaved with her, a police officer said.

“Yesterday, a woman Soni Sarsal (30) made a complaint at Bandra Police Station against Vinod Kambli and his wife Andrea that they had not allowed her to return home and wrongfully confined for three days when she asked them for the wages,” Mumbai Police spokesperson Dhananjay Kulkarni said.

In this regard, a case under IPC sections 343 (wrongful confinement), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) has been registered at Bandra Police Station, he said.

An officer at Bandra Police Station said they may call Vinod and his wife after ascertaining a few missing links in her statement.

To a question whether they would issue a summon to the couple, he declined to comment.
