An FIR was registered against former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli and his wife Andrea Hewitt following a complaint filed by the couple's domestic help, police said on Sunday.

The Bandra Police filed the FIR on Saturday against 43-year-old Kambli and Hewitt after their maid alleged that the couple was not paying proper wages to her and when she asked for it, they misbehaved with her, an officer said.

"Yesterday, a woman Soni Nafesinh Sarsal (30) made a complaint at Bandra Police Station against Vinod Kambli and his wife Andrea that they had not allowed her to return home and wrongfully confined her for three days when she asked them for the wages," Dhananjay Kulkarni, deputy commissioner (crime) and spokesperson of Mumbai police, said, confirming the incident.

"An FIR under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for wrongful confinement and criminal intimidation has been registered against Vinod Kambli and his wife." said Kulkarni.

The FIR also includes sections 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention).

An officer at Bandra Police Station said they may call Kambli and his wife after ascertaining a few missing links in her statement.

To a question whether they would issue a summon to the couple, he declined to comment.

Kambli made his Test debut for India against England at Kolkata in January 1993. In the 17 Test matches he played, the left-handed batsman scored 1084 runs at an average of 54.20. His last Test was against New Zealand at Cuttack in Novemeber 1995.

He played his first and last ODI in Sharjah, against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, respectively. His 104 ODIs yielded 2477 runs at an average of 32.59. He did not bowl in Tests, but he did get one wicket bowling his right-arm offbreaks in ODIs.
