Couple of days ago, Ravindra Jadeja’s wife Riva Solanki was physically assaulted by a police constable. A few days ago, Ravindra Jadeja’s wife met with an accident and her car hit the bike of a cop followed by which she was assaulted by a police constable. The police officer got down from his bike and physically assaulted the wife of India’s all-rounder player, Ravindra Jadeja.
The police constable pulled Riva’s hair and slapped her twice on her face and also smashed her face on the windshield. After the incident, Riva Solanki was rushed to the hospital where Jamnagar’s Superintendent took her statement.
The Superintendent of Police, Pradeep Sejul, confirmed that “the constable is suspended and the departmental action is initiated”.
When this incident happened, Ravindra Jadeja was in Mumbai preparing for the Qualifiers 1 of Playoffs against Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, Ravindra Jadeja had a conversation with the Superintendent of Police, Pradeep Sejul. The Superintendent also mentioned that Ravindra Jadeja did not pressurized him or any other Police official to take action against the Police officer.
Talking about their interaction, Pradeep Sejul said:
“Yes, I did speak to Jadeja (over telephone) but there was no pressure from celebrity cricketer to suspend the constable. This kind of incident, be with anybody, irrespective of gender, status can not be and will not be tolerated.”
However, this was a very shameful incident but the Police constable who attacked the wife of Indian all-rounder had no feelings of remorse or regret. Talking about the constable, Sejul said :
“it does not matter. There has been no defence from him so far…He got agitated after the incident”.
