IPL star Praveen Kumar involved in a brawl

Meerut: Indian medium-pacer Praveen Kumar was involved in a brawl on Wednesday in his hometown Meerut and allegedly thrashed a doctor of Subharti Medical College.

The doctor went to the police station to file a complaint against Praveen. Police officials called the two parties involved and sorted out the matter.

The incident took place on May 14 when Praveen along with his friends went to buy a firearm after the cricketer had procured an arms licence.

But when he was coming out of the shop, a car, belonging to Dr Shantanu reportedly splashed slush on the cricketer's clothes.

This angered Praveen and his friend and they got into a scuffle with the doctor.

After that Praveen and his friends followed Dr Shantanu to Modern Glass House where the doctor had gone to shop and beat him up.

The owner of Modern Glass House, Ashok Kumar, alleged that Praveen and his friends damaged the shop too and broke some things.

The matter was sorted out after Superintendent of Police, Rakesh Jolly, and Senior Superintendent of Police, RK Bhardwaj, spoke to Dr Shantanu and Praveen.

"Praveen and his friends beat me up and injured me. I did not file a complain as he is an upcoming cricket star," Dr Shantanu said.

Praveen plays for Bangalore Royal Challengers in the IPL series.
