Saachi Marwah, who is an architectural designer by profession and married to star KKR cricketer Nitish Rana, wrote on her Instagram: ‘Just a casual day in Delhi. On my way back home from work. These guys randomly started hitting my car! Just no reason, stalked and chased and the police told me on the phone when I complained, ‘so now that you’ve reached home safe, let it go! Next time, number note kar lena’ (note the number next time). Aye aye captain, next time I’ll take their phone numbers also!.”
