"I am not sure about his full name. But he tagged along with us after the party and (insisted) that we have few drinks with him. He told something to my fiance and I did not like," the victim said.

The woman said she felt "uncomfortable" by the "dirty, nasty looks" of the cricketer and told her fiance that he can have drinks with him if he wishes.

"When I tried to turn around and go to my room, he grabbed my hand and tried to kiss me. My fiance said 'listen, she is not any girl like that. Just leave and go back to your room'," she said.

At this, the player turned around and started beating up him several times and punched him on his face, she alleged.

"He got injured in his ears. He is not able to hear properly. He was bleeding," she said.
