Mirpur: Sudhir Gautam, famous Sachin Tendulkar and Indian cricket fan has claimed that he was pelted by stones and attacked by Bangladesh fans in Dhaka after India’s loss in the second one-day international on Sunday.
According to Sudhir, as soon as the match got over, he was mobbed by Bangladesh fans outside the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium here and the auto-rickshaw he hired was pelted by stones.
“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 who has travelled many times to Dhaka to watch and support Tendulkar and the Indian team, this is his eighth trip to the city.
