According to the complaint filed by Prithvi Shaw’s friend, Ashish Surendra Yadav, the accused followed the vehicle and used false statements to get money from them. Prithvi Shaw reportedly went to a five-star hotel in Santa Cruz, Mumbai for dinner. The unidentified accused came to Prithvi Shaw’s desk and insisted on giving a selfie. Reports suggest that Prithvi Shaw agreed to take a selfie with two other people and the accused joined the group to get a selfie with Shaw. However, the cricketer also refused selfies this time.
Prithvi Shaw’s friend called the manager and complained about them when they kept insisting that Shaw be photographed. The manager told the defendants to leave the hotel. Angered by this treatment of Prithvi Shaw and the restaurant management, they decided to destroy Shaw’s property.

They waited outside the hotel with baseball bats and smashed the back and rear windows of Prithvi Shaw’s friend’s car. Police officials said they are investigating the matter. A case has been registered against the accused under sections 384, 143, 148, 149, 427, 504 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code.
A video of part of the fight was released on social media platforms. The footage shows one of the eight accused attacking Prithvi, his friend in the car or Prithvia’s friend. Ashish Yadav and Prithvi Shaw have been together for three years in Bandra and the first said he was running a cafe. Yadav saw three motorcycles and a white car chasing their vehicle. At around 4am, his followers attacked his car as he was turning near a petrol station on Link Road. One of them slammed the baseball bat into the windshield, which shattered immediately.
The six people passed by on a motorcycle and two others, including a woman, assaulted Yadav and his companions. After that, Yadav took the car to Oshiwara police station. The eight defendants were also there with them. The accused woman started arguing and threatened Yadav to pay Rs. 50,000 to settle the matter otherwise he will file a false police complaint against them, the police officer said. Further research into this issue is currently underway.
