I-League giants Mohun Bagan have filed a complaint against East Bengal head coach Khalid Jamil after claiming that Jamil allegedly spit on an official of Mohun Bagan.
Bagan won the highly anticipated derby 1-0 but the game was marred by the unsavory incidents involving Jamil who has been alleged to have abused and spit on their media manager Imran Khan.
According to Imran, Jamil arrived at the stadium five hours prior to kickoff and demanded access to the dressing rooms. That was deemed not possible due to the I-League rules, leading to Jamil abusing the media manager. Jamil also allegedly spit on Imran after the game when Imran went to ask him to attend the post-match press conference.
As reported by Goal, Imran Khan said,

However, East Bengal gave a different account of the incident, claiming that Mohun Bagan were the ones at fault. Debabrata Sarkar, an East Bengal official, said,
