>The Bandra police on Wednesday summoned former cricketer Vinod Kambli’s wife Andrea and warned her over her aggressive behaviour towards a physically challenged woman. Andrea has been accused of abusing handicapped stall owner Evette Fernandes (35), at Bandra on October 12.
Fernandes, who runs a stall on St John Baptist Road, alleged that Andrea abused her and instigated her maid Pinki to beat her up without any provocation. Fernandes said, “Pinki threw around the things on my table and hit me. Andrea insulted me and used foul language with me. She also instigated Pinki to hit me more. ”
Zonal DCP KMM Prasanna said, “Pinki slapped Fernandes and Andrea abused her. We have registered a non-cognizable offence against the two.”
On Wednesday, more than 50 residents from the area approached the police in support of Fernandes and requested them to take the matter seriously.
