In 1996, the Indian team was on a tour of England. Sidhu and Ganguly were also included in the team on this tour. India had to face defeat in the first Test played on this tour, after which Ganguly and Sidhu left for a tour in England.

At the time when Ganguly and Sidhu were travelling in the metro, some youths had boarded the metro in a drunken state. The drunk youngsters were pointing towards Sidhu, which made Sidhu feel that these people are teasing us due to defeat in the first test, after which Sidhu confronted them.

Amidst the scuffle, a young man hit a beer bottle on Sidhu's head, while a young man shot a gun at Sidhu. After which Ganguly stopped Sidhu and talked to him made him understand the situation and took him back to the hotel.
