Complaint against Yuvraj Singh withdrawn

Last updated on: December 13, 2006 20:33 IST

Star cricketer Yuvraj Singh was accused on Wednesday of beating up one of his guests during a scuffle at his birthday party but the complaint was withdrawn after a 'compromise' was reached with the other side.

The incident allegedly took place during Yuvraj's birthday party on Tuesday in Gurgaon when Yuvraj Mahajan, a friend of Yuvraj Singh, alleged that the cricketer assaulted and threatened him.

Yuvraj Singh turned 25 on Tuesday.

Mahajan's mother Neelam later filed a complaint at the Gurgaon police station alleging that Yuvraj Singh, his mother Shabnam and girlfriend Kim Sharma had assaulted and threatened her.

However, she withdrew her complaint against Yuvraj after police intervened and brokered a compromise, police said. Police did not reveal the terms upon which the compromise was reached between the feuding parties.

It is believed action would now be taken against Ranjit Bajaj, a Chandigarh resident, in connection with the incident.

"My son, who had gone for Yuvraj Singh's party, was assaulted badly. So I filed a complaint with the police and rushed to the spot. When I reached there, Yuvraj Singh and his bodyguards assaulted me and even threatened to kill me and my son. His mother Shabnam and girlfriend Kim Sharma abused me a lot," Neelam Mahajan had alleged.

However, Shabnam Singh told a television channel that Neelam Mahajan's charges were false.

'She was the one who abused me a lot. We didn't say a word or do anything,' Shabnam Singh said.
