Chandīgarh: India’s former cricketer Yuvraj Singh was arrested by the Haryana police but later got released on a bail, on Saturday. He got arrested due to a casteist slur which he went on to make during an Instagram live video against Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal. The 39-year-old had early made an apology statement, because of his “Unintentional remarks”, and with that, he said that he was “misunderstood”, after a live video that was made during July 2020 along with his ex-teammate Rohit Sharma- and furthermore his comments about leg spinner Chanchal got widely spread on the social media sites which in turn led to a triggered situation,
it was seen that Singh and Sharma were discussing Chanchal’s Tiktok videos. “As per the court orders the former cricketer was arrested and then was released on an interim bail on Saturday '', said in a statement by Nikita Gahlaut, who is a senior officer in Haryana’s Hansi, she told all this over a phone call to the reporters. But on the other side, Yuvraja’s representative Shazmeen Kara went on to say in a statement that the former cricketer has not been arrested. According to the sources Singh had appeared in front of the police officers in Hisar along with his four-five staff members and even along with his security personnel, who were accompanying him from Chandigarh.
This move came up during a complaint filed in February this year by a Dalit Activist Rajat Kalsan in Haryana, and in the complaint, he went on to demand the arrest and for the registration of a case under the SC/ST Castes which will prohibit the discrimination. Mr. Kalsan even went on to say that "On October 6, the police was asked to include Yuvraj Singh in the probe. We have learned that yesterday,
Yuvraj Singh surrendered before the police in Hisar, he was questioned for two to three hours and then arrested. He was then released on bail bonds''. He further went on to add that the former cricketer will have to proceed for the hearing in court in Hisar. And he even said the “we will do our best to prove his guilt since he has insulted the whole community”.
The activist even went on to add that as the cricketer was released on Bail under the SC/ST Act, we are now challenging the Supreme Court to place him behind the bars. Singh took to his Twitter handle last year and expressed the regret he made a statement saying, “if I have unintentionally hurt anybody's sentiments or feelings", adding that his "love for India and all its people is eternal".I understand that while I was having a conversation with my friends, I was misunderstood, which was unwarranted. However, as a responsible Indian I want to say that if I have unintentionally hurt anybody's sentiments or feelings, I would like to express regret for the same. My love for India and all its people is eternal," the statement added.
