Bangalore, Oct 17(ANI): Two cricketers from Jammu and Kashmir, who had been detained after suspected residue of explosive materials was allegedly found in their bag in Bangalore, were released on Saturday "for lack of incriminating evidence".

According to reports, Bangalore police had detained Parvez Rasool and Mehrajudin following a tip-off that the two might have been carrying explosives to Chinnaswamy stadium, where two matches of the Champions League were to be played.

Earlier in the day, Bangalore police had taken both of them, who were in city to participate in the CK Naidu Trophy, into preventive custody. And an anti-explosive search was being conducted in the stadium to avoid any untoward incident on the occasion of Diwali.

Police said that there was no need to panic as the security has been beefed up in the city after the incident. (ANI)
