Ankit Tiwari Rises In Defence Of Dad Accused For ‘Inappropriately Touching’ Kambli’s Wife

Few hours ago, we reported about former India cricketer Vinod Kambli’s wife Andrea Hewitt alleging that a 59-year-old man touched her inappropriately in Inorbit Mall (Malad), yesterday. The accused in question was singer Ankit Tiwari’s father, RK Tiwari, who was accompanied by his son Ankur.

Ankit has defended his Dad and put out a statement from his social handle. His tweet reads, “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.”

See the footage below:

For those who’ve come in late, while talking to a leading daily, Kambli had insisted that “an old man inappropriately touched” his wife. He said, “We were at the Game Zone in the mall around 3 pm when my wife caught hold of an old man’s hand. He had deliberately brushed his hand against her and when she caught him in the act, he pushed her away. Minutes later when we were at the food court, two men, who we assume were the man’s sons, tried to attack my wife. When I told them to back off, they told me, ‘You don’t know who we are’.”

When Ankit’s brother Ankur was asked about the incident, he had said, “My father, a retired bank employee, had accompanied my daughter to the Game Zone. My father told me he spotted Vinod Kambli there, and as he was walking past a woman, he blacked out.  My father was disoriented after the attack. He couldn’t believe he had been punched, and that a woman was screaming, accusing him of brushing his hand against her. I asked my father to identify the woman, and we realised she was Kambli’s wife.”

A police complaint has been filed. Let’s see if we get something official from the cops on who was in the red.
