New Delhi: Seven men tried to barge into Manoj Prabhakar's flat in South Delhi early this morning and assaulted the security guard posted outside the complex. The former all-rounder filed a complaint this morning at the Kalkaji police station. ''We have sent constables to get details of the incident. We will also ask the two PSOs, provided for the cricketer's personal security for more information,'' the police said.''Seven persons came to me at around 0215 hrs and asked for Prabhakar's flat number before beating me up,'' said Kanshi Ram Sharma, the security guard who was on duty at the complex gate at that time. ''They threatened me with dire consequences,'' he said.Shaken by the incident, Prabhakar said he would shortly write to the Delhi Police Commissioner and Union Home Ministry asking for security for his family members. ''At present, security has been provided only to me and my family members remain at risk,'' he said.Prabhakar refused to comment as to who he suspected to be behind the incident, but added it was part of the series of threats he had been receiving after blowing the whistle on the match-fixing scandal three years ago. Ironically, Prabhakar himself was slapped with a life ban by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently as a follow-up of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry, which said he was in league with bookmakers and introduced several foreign cricketers to them. ''In 1997, I was threatened at gunpoint and now my wife routinely receives threatening calls ... They want me to remain silent,'' the former all-rounder said. UNI
