People present there informed Police soon and tried to resolve the matter between Ishan and others. Police arrested Ishan and people who were fighting with him. Police also took possession of Ishan’s car.
Ishan Kishan is a resident of district Navada district in Bihar. He was recently appointed as the skipper of Indian U-19 team for U-19 World Cup to be held in Bangladesh from January 22.
