Indian all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja’s wife Riva was allegedly assaulted by a police constable on Monday (21 May) following their vehicles’ collision in Gujarat's Jamnagar.
Reportedly, it has said that Mrs. Jadeja was riding her BMW car, and she unintentionally hit a policeman's bike at Saru Section road in Jamnagar, which led to a serious confrontation between them and even the Policeman raised the hand over the cricketers' wife.
Describing himself as an eyewitness of the incident, a person claimed that the policeman hit Mrs. Jadeja badly.
Later, the people standing around watching the quarrel came out to rescue Jadeja's wife and sent her to the DSP office. The accused Sanjay Ahir has been taken into custody following Rivaba Jadeja's complaint.
The reports also suggested that there was also Jadeja's child and his mother along with his wife in the car when the incident occurred and even the leg-spinner’s wife has also suffered minor injuries.

As per reports in Hindustan Times, Mr. Sejul stated, “According to reports, Rivaba’s car collided with the bike of constable Sanjay Ahir. After both vehicles stopped, Ahir allegedly attacked Rivaba when she stepped out of the car. She has received some injuries.”
The Police officer further added, “The department has begun the procedure to register an FIR. As assaulting a woman is a serious crime, Ahir is likely to face departmental inquiry and suspension.”
