India-Pak match: 6 detained in Samba after video showing raising of slogans goes viral

Six people have been detained by Jammu and Kashmir police after a video purportedly showing slogans being raised by a group of persons in Samba district, following a T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan, went viral on social media, officials said on Tuesday.

The video triggered widespread protests by various Hindu organizations in the Samba district.

The video shows over two dozen people celebrating the victory of the Pakistan cricket team against India, and raising objectionable slogans on Sunday night.

“Six people have been detained in this regard and investigation is going on,” Deputy Commissioner, Samba, Anuradha Gupta said.

A police officer said an FIR has been registered.

SSP Samba Rajesh Sharma said the detained people are being questioned regarding the incident. More people may be called for questioning, he said.

Videos of medical students raising pro-Pakistan slogans at their hostels had also gone viral on social media recently.
