Indian cricket team’s fast bowler Mohammed Shami was attacked by a group of youths in South Kolkata’s Katjunagar. This happened after Shami entered an argument with some youths.
As per ABP, the incident took place on Saturday night when Shami and his wife were returning home. It is alleged that Shami’s driver was driving fast and almost collided with a youth on the motorcycle. This reportedly led to an argument between the youth and Shami’s driver. All this happened meters away from the Indian cricketer’s residence.
After the argument between the driver and the youth got worse, Shami stepped in to pacify the situation. The pacer was successful in handing the matter. Also Read- Umar Akmal Posed With Bentley And Twitterati Had a Field Day

“He has been living here for a long time now. We never had any problems with him or his family. In fact, he does not behave like a celebrity at all. We often find him in front of the local chat centre. His daughter plays around in the local park. So it is hard to believe something like this would happen to them,” the report quoted a source close to Shami’s family.
