Ahmedabad: Rajkot district superintendent of police Gagandeep Gambhir said that the police would be registering an FIR against Hardik Patel for “insulting” the national flag.
According to Gambhir, Hardik’s feet touched the national flag which he was carrying as he jumped on a car in an attempt to talk to the media when he was stopped by the police at Madhapar crossroads in Rajkot this afternoon.
Whatever he has done is not allowed as per the law. So we will file an FIR for disrespecting the national flag.
Hardik was detained by police on his way to Khandheri cricket stadium in Rajkot ahead of the India-South Africa One Day International. He had threatened to stage a protest at the stadium. Gambhir said that action will also be taken against the driver of the car in which Hardik was traveling.
