Tiwari alleged that Hewitt assaulted him in the Inorbit Mall in Goregaon West where he and his family were spending their Sunday. In his statement he mentioned that not only did Kambli’s wife assault him, even his bodyguards manhandled his son.

CCTV footage from the children’s gaming area at Inorbit mall in north Mumbai’s Malad shows a man in white t-shirt walking past a woman, who is purportedly Mr Kambli’s wife. The man’s hands can be seen brushing against her. The woman is then seen hitting the man on his head and confronting him. Ankit Tiwari’s father was accompanied by a young girl who is reportedly his grand-daughter, reported NDTV.

The singer’s father has alleged that Ms Hewitt took her sandals off to beat him. The man says his younger son was injured after he was assaulted by Vinod Kambli’s bodyguards, according to Mid-Day.

Rajendra Tiwari has now demanded a public apology from the couple for their misbehaviour. “Yesterday, a woman accused me of touching her and she hit me. I told my sons about the incident. The woman and her husband Vinod Kambli started to fight with us. They should apologise to us publicly, we will pursue the case further,” read a tweet on ANI.

Hewitt, however, maintained her stand on the incident and said that Tiwari brushed himself against her. She told ANI, “Yesterday, a man brushed himself against me & passed an inappropriate comment at me. What I did afterwards was right. Soon after his sons came and started arguing with me, later we filed an FIR.”

Kambli had taken to Twitter to share the incident on Sunday. He tagged Mumbai Police and wrote, “Some miscreants tried to touch my wife inappropriately, When questioned, brought his sons n tried to come to blows. Sadly, Women safety on question once again.”

Ankit, too, took to Twitter to express his side of the story and said that he will share the actual CCTV footage and let the world decide for themselves. “Sad & Deeply hurt by unfortunate incident tht happd ystrday wid my father and bro @ankur_music Don’t want to Blame anyone. To prevent False Rumours from Spreading further. Sharing actual CCTV Footage asap & want the world to See it, Decide & Express watever they feel is Correct.”

“I’ve also made a complaint before them. Where is it,” Kambli said replying to a tweet.

The police are now investigating the matter and will take further action after their preliminary investigations. No arrest has been made so far.
