Vinod Kambli, wife booked for thrashing maid
MUMBAI: A first information report (FIR) has been registered with the Bandra police against former cricketer Vinod Kambli and his wife Andrea on Saturday by their 30-year-old female baby caretaker for alleged criminal intimidation and keeping her confined for three days at their Bandra flat when she demanded for her past 2 years pending salary and allow her to go to her house.

In her complaint, Soni Sarsal said, “The couple hired me two years ago to look after their child. I was hired for a monthly payment of Rs 10,000. However Kambli and his wife did not keep up to their words and paid her salary very rarely after repeatedly I pestered them.” The matter worsened for her when on Wednesday when Kambli and his wife “denied to allow her to go her house and even turned down to pay her salaries”.

TOI repeatedly tried to contact Kambli on his mobile but was found not reachable. While his wife said in some section of the media that the caretaker lodged the complaint after they sacked her after finding she is addicted to drugs.

Police has charged the couple under the Indian Penal Code sections 34 (common intention), 342 (wrongful confinement), 504 (insult to provoke breach of peace), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, act or gesture to insult the modesty of women).

Mumbai police spokesperson DCP Dhananjay Kulkarni said the case was registered after Sarsal approached the Bandra police on Saturday complaining against Kambli and his wife Andrea that they did not allowed her to return home and wrongfully confined for three days, when she asked for her wages.

Meanwhile a Bandra police officer said that they will call the couple to record their statements before taking any action.
