A Mumbai Court on Monday granted bail to social media influencer Sapna Gill and three others in the Prithvi Shaw selfie case.
The order comes just minutes after Gill was sent to Judicial Custody for 14 more days by the Court for allegedly assaulting India cricketer Prithvi Shaw and his friend's car last week.
Gill had filed a bail plea in Andheri Court after she was remanded to Judicial Custody.
Accused Sapna Gill and her friend Shobhit Thakur had allegedly damaged Prithvi Shaw's friend's car during an altercation on the streets of Mumbai after meeting the Indian cricketer inside a nightclub near the Sahar Airport.
Gill and Thakur were among 8 people booked by the Oshiwara Police under various sections of the Indian Penal Court. She was arrested while three others were detained after last week's incident.
What happened between Shaw and the accused?
A couple of fans went up to Shaw to take pictures with the Mumbai cricket team skipper and Shaw obliged but he refused to entertain them any further after they came back with more people.
The two were identified as Sana alias Sapna Gill and her friend Shobit Thakur. Both were asked to leave the hotel premises by the nightclub manager after Shaw's friends complained about them.
Gill and Thakur gathered more people and waited outside for Shaw to confront him. They chased down his vehicle and the two parties got into a heated exchange with Shaw's friend's BMW getting damaged in the incident.
