Mallika Sherawat was reportedly tear-gassed and beaten up in her apartment block in Paris on Friday. According to a report in Daily Mail, Sherawat and her boyfriend Cyrille Auxenfans were attacked by intruders who ‘wore scarves across their faces and without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them.’

Prosecutors said the couple most likely inhaled fumes from the tear gas. Officials say Auxenfans was most likely harmed by the suspects but that the couple refused to see a doctor to assess possible injuries. They said Sherawat was not thought to have been physically harmed in the attack.

The police revealed about the incident, which happened on the night of November 11 — just a month after reality TV star Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint here, reports dailymail.co.uk. According to Le Parisien newspaper, the criminals wore scarves across their faces and “without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them”. They then fled, leaving a shocked Mallika and her friend to call the emergency services.

The report said that the police have launched a criminal investigation, and detectives believe that this may have been a robbery attempt. “We cannot understand why the attackers fled without taking anything,” a source in the investigation told AFP.

Sherawat has barely escaped similar incidents in the past in India. A report in Mid-Day said that Sherawat was at the risk of being attacked in Jaipur in 2013 when she was shooting for the biopic of Bhanwari Devi. The Myth actor is pursuing her career in the West.

Though no reaction came from Mallika on this attack but she shared with fans a video from Geneva, where she was travelling on November 12. “In #Geneva #Switzerland for the weekend, wanted to share with you one of my favorite places:) #lifestyle #weekendvibes #lareserve,” she wrote along with her post.

Today morning, she also posted a throwback pic at the Taj Mahal. “Loved visiting the Taj Mahal, words can’t describe its beauty #TajMahal #love #ThrowbackThursday.”

Earlier, Mallika was in the news when her father had confirmed that she got married to Paris-based businessman Cyrille Auxenfaus. It was reported that the duo had got married secretly but the actress had later taken to Twitter and denied the buzz. “STOP spreading rumours. It’s NOT true! The day I get married, you all will be invited. It’s NOT TRUE. Please don’t spread rumours. I am on my way to Cannes with my film Time Raiders,” she had tweeted.

Though earlier expressing her love to her beau, Mallika Sherawat took to Instagram to share a post which read, “Being in love is one of the best feelings in the world!❤️❤️❤️❤️”

Rising to fame in India in 2003, the Bollywood actress went on to star in a string of high-profile movies including “Myth” with Jackie Chan and has a racy, sex-symbol image in her home country.

Sherawat, 40, who has nearly 2 million followers on Twitter, is no stranger to France and has graced the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.
