Former India team cricketer Vinod Kambli arrested for drunk driving.

According to Bandra police Kambli then drove out of his building Jewel Co-op Housing Society at 12.30 pm after an argument with the watchman and other residents.

Rajesh Devare, senior police inspector from Bandra police station said that they received a call from a local resident about Kambli’s condition.
