Sudhir Gautam Attacked By Bangladeshi Fans –
Indian subcontinent has frequently seen tempers running high and interests lighting for the sake of cricket. The most recent is the assault on Sachin Tendulkar’s most famous fan, Sudhir Gautam, after the second India-Bangladesh ODI by Bangladeshi fans in Dhaka on Sunday, June 21.
“As soon as I left the stadium, people mobbed me and started snatching the Tricolour, breaking the handle of the flag. Two policemen who were outside the stadium came to my rescue and they escorted me to an auto-rickshaw. But the mob further attacked the auto and tried to break into it. They even hurled stones on the vehicle but luckily the auto was covered completely and I didn’t get hurt,” Sudhir told Cricketnext.
Sudhir Gautam is generally recognized crosswise over cricketing circles as Tendulkar’s most noteworthy fan. With a tri-shading painted on his body, Sudhir can be spotted cheering at all India coordinates regardless of where on the planet its being held. The dishonorable episode comes as an impolite stun for Sudhir as he has been to Dhaka truly various times.
The continuous India-Bangladesh arrangement has raised a considerable measure of eyebrows among cricket fans as India – one of cricket’s powerhouses – has been humbled after the arrangement rout on account of purported “minnows” Bangladesh. In any case, the off-field episode is yet another sample of occasions where sports obsession have brought about hooliganism.
