Last year, police in Hyderabad had arrested four Kashmiri students after they refused to stand up during the national anthem of India. In the viral video, two cricket teams - one in green and other in white - were seen standing in line while Pakistan's national anthem "Pak Sarzameen" is played in the background. In the video, players have also bowed their heads while singing Pakistan's national anthem.
Police has lodged an FIR under section 13 of the unlawful activities.
Police confirmed that they have booked the two teams but did not give details about the number of people who were arrested or the identity of the teams.
This is not the first time cricket matches have led to arrests in Kashmir. The teams involved were MCC, Gondipora and Dardpora Cricket Club. The uproar began when Bandipora legislator Usman Majeed urged the J&K government to "pardon" the young cricketers, who were arrested two days ago for playing the neighbouring country's national anthem before the start of a cricket match in Bandipora. In April 2017, at least 11 cricketers were detained by the Jammu and Kashmir police from central Kashmir's Ganderbal district. Two Kashmiri cricket teams have been booked and several players reportedly detained for standing just when Pakistan's national anthem was being played at a cricket match last week. This came to the notice of the authorities after a video of the incident went viral.
