"We also hope that relevant departments, Shanghai sporting event management and Shanghai SIPG FC would handle the case in a fair and impartial manner, publish the evidence and let the truth be known."

Hulk scored in the second half of his team's win, their fifth in eight Chinese Super League (CSL) games as they kept the pressure on leaders Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao.

On Sunday, the Brazilian had denied claims he was involved in an altercation with Yu.
