The footage's of the irate Afridi attacking the fan was splashed across local channels like Geo News and other channels. The images show Afridi pushing the fan to the ground and roughing him up. As per reports in local channels, Afridi lost his cool when the fan irritated him and started pestering him for an autograph that triggered such a violent behaviour from the cricketer.
Another report however suggest that the Pakistani all-rounder lost his temper when his daughter was pushed around by fans who were eager to get Afridi's autograph. The cricketer even attempted to kick the fan before his brother Mushtaq stopped him from doing so.
Afridi was also seen getting into an argument with another fan and threatening to slap him before he got into the waiting car. A large crowd had gathered at the Karachi airport to welcome the winning Pakistan team after bagging the Asian Cup title. One channel has been quoted as saying, "Whatever the reason for him losing his temper but Afridi's actions cannot be justified at all."
