A man claiming to have witnessed the incident said the policeman thrashed Reeva Jadeja “brutally”.
“The policeman mercilessly thrashed Reeva and even pulled her hair during an altercation. We saved her from his clutches,” Vijaysinh Chavda told reporters.
Ravindra Jadeja hasn’t given a statement regarding the incident and there is no update if he would be travelling to Gujarat to be with his wife.
CSK are set to play in the first qualifier against SRH tomorrow and Jadeja is scheduled to play in it.
We’ll have to wait and see if Jadeja decides to return to Jamnagar, but it is most likely that he would feature for CSK tomorrow.
