The woman, who appears to be influential, has now asserted that Prithvi Shaw and his pals physically assaulted her. Eight people were booked by the Oshiwara Police in Mumbai and three of them namely Sana, alias Sapna Gill, claimed that Prithvi Shaw assaulted her and her friends with a stick in his hand. Ali Kashif Khan, Sapna Gill’s lawyer, claimed that when Sapna Gill was at the Oshiwara police station in Bombay, the authorities were preventing her from getting medical tests.
“Sapna was assaulted by Prithvi. A stick was seen in Prithvi’s hand. Prithvi’s friends assaulted the group first. Sapna is currently at Oshiwara police station. The police are not allowing her to go for medical,” Ali Kashif was quoted as saying by India Today.
The Oshiwara police had charged eight persons, including Sapna, for assaulting Prithvi Shaw and a friend’s automobile outside a 5-star hotel in Mumbai. When Prithvi Shaw was having dinner with a friend, Sapna Gill and her friend Shobhit Thakur approached him for a selfie. This led to a fight.
According to the police report, Shaw initially complied with Sapna’s requests for selfies but objected as she came with her friends. However, Prithvi afterward explained that he had come to eat with his friend and did not want to be disturbed. The hotel manager was eventually called by his friend, who forced Sapna and her friends to leave the hotel.
After dinner, when Prithvi and his companion left the hotel, they saw the suspects standing there holding baseball bats. Additionally, his friend claimed in his complaint that the group had threatened to fake charges against Prithvi and his friends unless they paid them Rs 50,000.
