India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has been arrested in Haryana and released on interim bail after he made a caste-based remark on cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal during an Instagram live with Rohit Sharma. Hansi resident Rajat Kalsan had filed an FIR against the 39-year-old cricketer under various sections of the IPC and the SC/ST Act.

“Hansi SP Nitika Gahlout informed here today that Singh joined the investigation as per the directions of the court with the investigation officer today. The SP said he was released on interim bail after the arrest. She said that the police had already recovered the phone of the cricketer,” Chandigarh-based newspaper ‘The Tribune’ reported.

He was booked under Sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc, and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 153B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration) of the IPC and Section 3(1)(u) of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention and Atrocities) Act on the complaint of a Hansi-based lawyer and activist, Rajat Kalsan.

Kalsan had alleged that Yuvraj had made an objectionable remark while referring to Chahal. The cricketer has approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking quashing of the FIR while pleading innocence in the case.

A second FIR was filed against the cricketer in February this year for using casteist slur against India cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal. The story goes back to June 2020 when on a Facebook Live with Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj made some remarks about Team India spinner which didn’t go down well with the Dailt community. Back then a Dalit Advocate had filed an FIR against the 39-year-old.
