Prithvi Shaw Stopped By Cops For Travelling To Goa Without E-Pass


Mumbai: India’s young and dynamic opening batsman Prithvi Shaw was today stopped by Maharashtra police for travelling without an e-pass amid the lockdown.

Shaw was traveling to the popular holiday destination Goa for a vacation. For the same, the young batter was driving to Goa via Kolhapur. However, he received a major setback when he was stopped by Police in the Amboli district and was asked to show his e-pass.

Due to the lockdown, it is mandatory for the citizens to get the permission of the authorities before moving within or out of the state. However, Shaw didn’t have an e-pass, and thus despite his various pleadings the police didn’t allow him to travel to his destination.

In the end, the batsman applied for an e-pass online through his phone and was allowed to move towards Goa only an hour later after he received the clearance.

Shaw has a lot of free time under his belt as the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was suspended after hosting just 29 matches. In addition, the 21-year-old hasn’t been selected in India’s squad for the final of WTC against New Zealand followed by a five-match test series against England.
