In a shocking video that has gone viral, a female spectator has been captured assaulting a policeman at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The cricket stadium was scheduled to host the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 final between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Titans (GT) on Sunday, May 28. However, no play was possible due to persistent rain, forcing the match to be postponed to the reserve day on Monday.
Even though no play was possible on Sunday, a video from the Narendra Modi Stadium started doing the rounds on social media in which a woman is seen hitting a cop.
In the clip, the female pushes the policeman to the ground after it seemed they had an argument over something.
Later, the cop tries to walk away from the scene, but the angry woman pushes him once again. Some unconfirmed reports claim that the policeman appeared drunk.
According to a report in TOI, Ahmedabad police are currently investigating the identity of the policeman, as he was dressed in a police uniform.
