According to the news agency PTI, a senior police official said that this incident took place on Saturday evening during the match between Delhi Daredevils and Mumbai Indians.

The officer said, “The victim complained that Balraj Dadulal Satnami, who distributed the water in the stadium, touched her improperly. The policemen present in the stadium caught Satnami after being reached out for help.”

According to the complaint, the woman was sitting in her enclosure with her students when Satnami approached her with water. The woman said that she declined his offer, but he kept insisting. The man then came close to her and touched her inappropriately forcing the woman to shout.
