  • Two cricket teams have been booked for standing in honour of Pakistan’s national anthem being played before the start of a match in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district

Four Kashmiri cricketers were arrested in Indian Occupied Kashmir over the weekend for playing Pakistan's national anthem before the start of a match, according to reports in Indian media. Before the match commenced, the national anthem of Pakistan was played on a loudspeaker with players of both teams standing in attention.

The police said they were looking for the tournament organisers and other players involved in the incident.

In April 2016, a similar case had surfaced when youths were detained for wearing green jerseys of Pakistan's national eleven for a local cricket match.

The stadium where the incident took place is a local ground situated among hillocks. Apart from arresting four localities, the police have also registered a case against the two teams for participating in unlawful activities.

On Sunday morning, the Jammu and Kashmir police booked two cricket teams and several cricketers in Kashmir for standing in respect of Pakistan's national anthem. This came to the notice of the authorities after a video of the incident went viral.

Sources said the match was played a few days ago at Arin in Bandipore.

Police had arrested some of the boys then but they were let off after assurances from the parents.

Zulfiqar Azad, SSP Bandipora told Kashmir Wire "We have made arrests in this regard and have counseled the village elders".
