After the match all the players were called for get together. I would not like to take his name but there was a player who was under the influence of alcohol, he was very drunk. He was staring at me for a long time. He called me, he took me out and he hanged me on the balcony of the 15th floor.
At that time I was completely scared. I grabbed that player tightly. My hands were wrapped around his neck, if I had missed my grip, I would have been falling from the 15th floor. However, people came there in a short time and this situation was brought under control. I was completely scared. I had fainted, people gave me water, that day I understood how responsible we should be while going out. It was an incident which I have not forgotten till date.”
