Cricketers’ arrested for respecting national anthem

Prior to a match, the national anthem of the players’ country is played, and respect is given to the anthem. That is what these four cricketers did.

Four Kashmiri boys were arrested on Sunday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Bandipora district for lining up as Pakistan’s national anthem was played before the start of a cricket match.

After a video went viral showing the players’ conduct in Arin village before the start of the match, police arrested the four.

Police said they were looking for the organizers of the match who arranged the shooting of the video.
