Although the content of the pouch is still uncertain, Agarwal has filed a formal complaint with the police, prompting an investigation into the matter.
“(Mayank) while sitting on a flight saw a pouch in front of him and thinking of it as water, drank it. He had swelling and ulcers in his mouth. His condition is normal, and his vitals are stable. His manager has made a complaint. We are registering the complaint and will investigate the matter,” Kiran Kumar K, Superintendent of Police of West Tripura, told PTI.
Meanwhile, as per the latest update, Mayank Agarwal has been released from ILS Hospital in Agartala a day after being admitted for oral irritation and lip swelling. After being discharged, the Karnataka coach spoke to the media, downplaying the incident, stating that whatever happened is now in the past, and he didn’t elaborate much on the details. He said:
“We thought Mayank would take 2 to 3 days to recover. He got released within 24 hours. Whatever happened is past. I don’t want to talk about it now. The care in Tripura was wonderful, ”
On the other hand, Mayank refrained from speaking to the media after getting discharged as he flew back to Bengaluru.
