Former India batsman, Vinod Kambli, is exactly contrast of his childhood friend Sachin Tendulkar. While Sachin enjoys clean public image, his friend seems to be mother controversy’s favourite child.

Kambli, who has had a checkered past, is in the news again for all wrong reasons. A Local Bank in Mumbai, Dombivli to be precise, issued an advertisement in a Marathi newspaper on Saturday, declaring him and his wife defaulters, as per a report in English daily Mid-day.

“Kambli had taken housing and vehicle loans from the bank, which were given to him after following all the rules.

He paid a few instalments initially and then stopped. One of our employees, Deepa Upadhyay, had gone to his house in September 2010 to request him to pay the money, but his wife had slapped Upadhyay and filed a non-cognisable complaint against her,” said a Bank officer Nagari Sahakari of DNS Bank.

The advertisement labels Kambli as defaulter and says all legal ways to recover the money from Mr. Kambli have been tried, but he did not respond. Advertisement, in fact, asks readers to inform the bank if they know any details regarding the properties owned by Kambli.

Chairperson of Bank, Uday Karve, says: “We have followed all the legal procedures. He (Kambli) was also warned that his photograph would be published if he did not make the payment. Since he had not responded, we published his photograph as part of the advertisement.”

Karve also reveals that the two guarantors of Kambli’s loans – on is a physiotherapist and other is an MLA could also find themselves in trouble.
