Jammu: A police case filed against the local cricket team in Kashmir’s Ganderbal district for playing Pakistani anthem before a match on Wednesday.
A video of a cricket team in green jersey lip syncing the Pakistan national anthem with reverence at a place not far away from Srinagar has gone viral on social media prompting the state police to launch a probe.
“Yes, we hope to arrest them sooner or later. These youth have fled from their homes and we will soon get them,” Fayaz Lone, SSP Ganderbal told News18. “A speedy investigation is on in the case.”
The video was from a match which took place between two clubs in the central Kashmir district of Ganderbal though police are trying to get more details about the playground where it was.
Sources said the match was played at a playground in central Kashmir a few days ago when separatists had called for a bandh. Schools and colleges were closed that day.
