Amit Bhandari former Indian cricketer and Delhi selector assaulted by goons at U-23 trials
At least two aspiring cricketers on Monday thrashed the selector of senior men’s team and former cricketer, Amit Bhandari, here after they apparently failed the trials, officials of Delhi police and Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) said.
The incident took place at St Stephens ground in north Delhi area at around 1 pm during trials for the Under-23 Mushtaq Ali Trophy, they said.
“Around 1 pm, two-three players came to him (Bhandari) and started hitting him with a bat on his head. He was bleeding and was rushed to the hospital,” a DDCA official told ANI.
“The selection committee was selecting players for Mushtaq Ali Trophy selection. One rejected player came to him and questioned why he was not selected. Then he started beating him (Bhandari). First, he used his hands, then used a stick to attack,” DCP Nupur Prasad told reporters.
“Let us wait what doctors have to say. We have not got any statement. Once we get it, we will be clear on the facts,” Prasad added. ANI
