KARACHI: A group of youths of India-held Kashmir were detained on Wednesday after a video clip went viral on social media which showed them playing a cricket match wearing the green uniform of Pakistan’s national team, sources said.
The clip went viral after the Kashmir Media Service uploaded it along with a news report on its website.
Ghulam Hassan Bhat, the deputy inspector general of police for Central Kashmir, said the cricketers had been detained for questioning. “The boys are in the police station.”
Security was beefed up as residents gathered near the police station, demanding immediate release of the 11 players, who reportedly represent a cricket club in the Kalmul area of held Kashmir’s Ganderbal region.. Tags: #Kashmir-Muslims #Pakistan #
