Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) U-19 woman selection committee chief Alpesh Shah has been charged with sexual harassment.


The victim’s father Sandeep Thakkar said Alpesh called up my daughter to his administrative block office of Holkar Stadium on the evening of September 23 to give her special blessings and tried to sexually assault her.


According to PTI, Tukoganj police yesterday registered a case against Shah under IPC Section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) on a complaint filed by her, they said.


The victim went to the police station with her father and grandfather and gave a statement about the episode, they said, adding further investigation in the matter was on.


Just before filing of the case, Shah stepped down from his post yesterday. He is also convener of MPCA’s Selection Committee for under-19 women’s team.
