Former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli has filed a complaint against a foreign lady for making a racist comment against him over a car parking dispute in the housing society where he lives.

In his complaint, Kambli told Bandra Police that at around 8:15 pm on Thursday, he had an argument with a lady residing in the Jewel Co-operative Housing Society building.

Kambli said the argument started over a parking issue. He alleged that during the argument the lady called him a "Bully", which means "Black Indian".

The Bandra Police station has accepted Kambli's complaint and has assured that it will carry out an investigation against the foreign lady on Friday.



Kambli later told media: "There was a dispute on a parking issue, but, during the dispute, she (foreign lady) used some racial statement. I asked her to talk to the society chairman. She threatened me that she has contacts in India and abroad. Then, she called me a "Black Indian"."

"She is a tenant over here. Then, I filed an FIR at the Bandra Police station after she called me a "Bully", which means "Black Indian". I felt very bad after hearing the word "Black Indian".

According to the law, no action can be taken against a woman at night. But, the police assured me that they will take action in the morning. I think this is an abuse to Indians. We welcome our guests here, and, they speak to us like this," he added.
