Protesting Shiv Sena activists arrested outside PCA stadium

Written by: Staff

Mohali, Oct 25 (UNI) The Punjab Police took into custody 60 Shiv Sena activists who were protesting against the staging of the ICC trophy Pakistan-New Zealand match at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium here today.

The protestors raising anti-Pakistan slogans were picked-up by the police about 500-metres from the PCA stadium, just after the day-night encounter commenced. Shouting slogans, 'Pakistan go back', they alleged that Pakistan was abetting and arming terrorists.

The Shiv Sena members who were led by the Sena's Delhi unit president Jai Bhagwan Goel squarely blamed Pakistan for the serial train bomb blasts in Mumbai and other places in the country. Senior Punjab Shiv Sena leader Arvinder Arora was also amongst those who were taken into custody.

They were all later arrested under sections 107 and 151 of the CrPC, police officials here stated.

The Shiv Sena had dug up the pitch at the PCA before the start of the India-Pakistan test match in March last year.
