Social media influencer Sapna Gill denied all allegations against her, reiterating that she did not request selfies with Prithvi Shaw.
Gill, who was arrested for allegedly assaulting Indian cricketer Prithvi Shaw’s car and handcuffing him, accused Shaw and his friends of sexually assaulting her on Tuesday. She denied all charges against her, reiterating that she did not request selfies with the cricketer. Sapna stated to the news organization ANI that they did not “attack anyone or ask for money.”
“We didn’t beat anyone, nor did we ask for money…or selfies. We were enjoying ourselves, so my friend tried to make a video…they were beating my friend.”ANI quoted her in a statement.
ANI reports that Sapna’s attorney, Kaashif Ali Khan, filed an application on Monday claiming that Shaw “outraged her modesty” and attacked her with a “deadly weapon.” While attempting to save her friend, she claimed that her private parts were touched and that one or two people hit her with a baseball.
“I went there and stopped them. My friend tried to make a video to show the proof. They beat me with a baseball after I tried to save my friend. One or two people hit me and touched my private parts, and even slapped me,”she told ANI.
Shaw was purportedly mauled and his vehicle went after with a play club outside a lodging in Mumbai’s Santacruz in the early long periods of Wednesday, following a contention with the powerhouse and her companion Shobit Thakur after the batsman supposedly wouldn’t click more selfies with them.
On Thursday, Gill was taken into custody by the Oshiwara Police Department, along with seven others, for allegedly trying to intimidate Shaw and threatening to put him in a false case. On Friday, she was brought before the Andheri court, which placed her in police custody until Monday.

A Mumbai court granted Sapna and three other accused people bail after rejecting the police’s request for a four-day extension of their remand on the grounds that they needed more time to recover the baseball bat and the vehicle used in the alleged crime.
“A criminal complaint has been registered against Prithvi Shaw, Ashish Surendra Yadav, Brijesh and others (not known to complainant) for illegal acts of molesting and outraging the modesty of Sapna Gill under sections 34, 120b, 144, 146, 148, 149, 323, 324, 351, 354 & 509 of IPC, ”Sapna’s lawyer told ANI.
