Bollywood star tear-gassed in her lover's Paris apartment

MALLIKA Sherawat was attacked near to where Kim Kardashian West was robbed in Paris.

The 40-year-old Bollywood star was "tear gassed" and punched in the face inside her lover Cyrille Auxenfans' apartment block in the French capital on Friday night (11.11.16) by intruders wearing scarves over their faces.

The incident took place minutes from where the 36-year-old 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star went through her own ordeal last month.

Local newspaper Le Parisien has described the moment the attackers approached her and her male friend "without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them".

Detectives have launched an investigation under the presumption that they were attempting a robbery.

The report states: "The attackers then ran away, leaving a shocked Ms Sherawat and her friend to call the emergency services.

"A criminal investigation has been launched, with detectives working on the theory that the assailants were attempting a robbery."

While nothing was stolen from the apartment, police are no doubt concerned that it could be related to Kim's attack.

The reality TV star was left "badly shaken" after armed robbers dressed as police officers got into her private apartment in the city.

Two men got into Kim's room and tied her up, before locking her in the bathroom and making off with millions of dollars worth of jewellery and two cell phones.
