One of the most visible Indian cricket fans and an ardent Sachin Tendulkar supporter, Sudhir Gautam was attacked in Bangladesh on Sunday, reports said.

According to a report in IBN Live, Sudhir was ‘mobbed’ outside the stadium as soon as the match got over.

“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 was quoted by the website.

Sudhir is a regular among the crowds whenever India go out to play abroad.

The reason for the attack is still not known but a report in Zee News claims that the fan attacked him to avenge Bangladesh’s loss in the World Cup quarter-final.

Bangladesh defeated India on Sunday in the second successive ODI match to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in 3-match series.

      Did Modi missed on giving something to Bangaladesh in the historic land agreement ? Why an Indian fan has to get such treatment, when the other Virat Indian had just signed a landmark agreement ?

            Hi Lads, lets not just hear one side of the story and accuse the w Bangaldeshi fans biased on the news that does not have any evidnace to claim that he was attacked. I think the media wanted some attention or to discredit Bangladeshi cricket fans. Truth is Sudhir were never attacked physically, however he did get panic attack on while Bangladeshi fans were Roaring with the rising tigers. and my view is, Indian Cricket Fans are our guest and they should be treated with respect and I m very sure they are being treated with respect. read on bdnews24 the truth regarding the false news and Please, please dont mix sports with polictics.
