The complaint is in relation to yesterday's incident following the match against Mumbai Indians, where Mr Singh made an unprovoked attack on Mr Sreesanth”.

Harbhajan Singh had slapped his national cricket teammate Sreesanth following a small argument that ensued between the two at the end of IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians teams.
