Latest Cricket News – India vs Bangladesh 1st Test at Indore: A 22-year-old youth was arrested on Saturday during the Indo-Bangladesh Test match, defying the security system here. He is a big fan of Indian captain Virat Kohli and did this to fulfill his desire to meet him. However, Virat Kohli also handled the matter quite well. Virat Kohli was seen putting his hand on this fan’s shoulder and explaining something to him.
The young man was wearing a T-shirt with Virat Kohli’s name printed on it. However, when he entered the ground, he took off the T-shirt. This young man had written Virat Kohli and VK (short name of Kohli’s name) on his face and body with colors. He also got a tattoo of Kohli’s name on his arm. Not only this, he had his hair cut in a special way, so that “VK” was written on his head too.
When he broke through the security cordon and entered the ground, the Indian team was fielding against Bangladesh. Seeing him moving rapidly towards the players, the security personnel breathed in, while the players were suddenly shocked to see him on the field.
However, he managed to reach Virat Kohli while running. The Indian captain was seen trying to understand the whole matter with the security personnel by placing his hand on his shoulder. During this time, Kohli was also seen pointing to the security personnel that they should treat their fans with tenderness. Pictures of these moments are going viral on social media.
The game stalled for a few minutes due to Virat Kohli’s fan presence on the field. The fan was later taken to the Tukoganj police station, where legal action was taken against him. Police officials said that the young man who entered the ground during the international match was caught and taken into custody as soon as he saw it. Later, on the complaint of Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA), he was arrested under section 448 (unauthorized entry to any place) of Indian Penal Code.
He said that the arrested youth has been identified as Suraj Singh Bisht (22). He is originally from Uttarakhand. He is a cook in a hotel in Bhanvarkuan area of Indore. According to officials, during the interrogation, Bisht said that he is a great admirer of Kohli and due to the old desire to meet the Indian captain, he had entered the grounds by forging the viewer gallery.
