As per the petition filed by the Kerala Blasters FC player, who is currently with Chennayin FC on loan, fake voice clipping and a video of him misbehaving with a ball boy during the ISL match between Kerala Blasters and Chennayin FC, which was held on February 15 in Kochi, had been propagating via Facebook and WhatsApp since Saturday. He submitted the digital evidence along with the complaint.
