Justice Oka directed Sharma to cooperate with the investigation and submit relevant documents pertaining to the case. Sharma is seeking quashing of the FIR against him by a former engineer and Kabaddi player Abhisek Ekal at the Bhoiwada police station in 2015. The FIR claims that the commentator and others “hijacked” Ekal’s idea of Pro-Kabaddi League. The League is co-promoted by Sharma and was launched in 2014.
