The Jodhpur case, reported in a section of media, is the latest in the list of troubles the two Indian international cricketers have faced over their reactions and confessions in the talk show. The details of the case are not revealed further as Johar faces the head in the matter for the first time.
Pandy and Rahul had paid dearly for their “loose talk” about women and sexist remarks. News agency ANI has shared the information about the case in Jodhpur on its official twitter handle.

Trolls on the ANI tweet indicate that public sentiments now in general is against the case being filed against the duo, which has already paid a heavy price for their “irresponsible” act. The duo had faced flak from all quarters, besides getting suspension which resulted in their elimination from the limited-overs series in Australia.
Pandya and Rahul had earlier been suspended indefinitely, pending inquiry, by the BCCI’s Committee of Administrators. The ban was later rescinded by the BCCI, allowing Pandya to join the Indian team in New Zealand for the last two games of the five-match One-Day International and the three-match T20 International Series. Rahul has since been called for the first class games.
The suspensions were lifted on January 24 pending appointment of an ombudsman. Pandya played three ODIs against New Zealand taking four wickets and scoring 61 runs.
