In a shocking turn of events, Delhi pacer Parvinder Awana was attacked by a set of goons in Greater Noida’s Site-4 area on Friday night.
Speaking to The Times of India, Awana said: "I saw some criminals fighting among themselves at a welding shop". The bowler asked them to make peace, then bought some ice and left for home. But the gang of goons chased Awana and forced him to stop his car. "They thrashed me and fled from the spot," he revealed.
The cricketer had earlier reported the incident on a WhatsApp group called TenNewsNoida, where he wrote, "Mera par hmla hua, Abhi side 4 par, Kise par police ka no h, G noida plz help. (I have been beaten up by goons. Please provide me with the contact number of the police in Noida).

In the domestic circuit, the right-arm medium pacer plies his trade for Delhi. He has also represented the Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League.
