Former India batsman Yuvraj Singh could land in serious legal trouble because of his recent comments during an interaction with Rohit Sharma on Instagram Live. The legendary batsman is facing the heat because of his comments on his former teammate Yuzvendra Chahal.
It was an unintentional jibe from Yuvraj Singh but recently a number of users on social media expressed their displeasure over the same. The conversation had taken place around a month ago but hundreds of users on Twitter made it clear that they are still miffed with the comment.
Earlier this week, the users made the hashtag Yuvraj Singh Alopogise in Hindi one of the top trends. The hashtag #युवराज_सिंह_माफी_मांगो has so far seen more than 30,000 tweets with users demanding an apology from the legendary batsman.
During the video interview, Yuvraj Singh had called Chahal a ‘bhangi’ (a casteist remark) referring to the latter’s popular TikTok videos. The way Yuvraj Singh made the comment, it was clear that it was a light-hearted jibe. Both he and Rohit had laughed off the matter.
Legal action taken:
Yuvraj Singh’s comments have not gone down well with some of the Dalit right activists in Haryana. As per reports, a police complaint has been lodged against him by Dalit rights activist and advocate Rajat Kalsan, according to Zee News.
The complaint has been lodged in Hansi in Hisar, Haryana. The main agenda which Rajat Kalsan has presented is the fact that Yuvraj made anti-Dalit remarks. Kalsan has pointed out that that the former player’s comment has hurt the sentiment of the Dalit people in the society.
Once the complaint was lodged by Kalsan, he went ahead to target Rohit as well. He said that Rohit should have opposed Yuvraj over the comment. Kalsan said that he registered the case and has demanded the arrest of Yuvraj Singh.
Meanwhile, Hansi SP Lokendra Singh has said that he has submitted the investigation to DSP. He further stated that all aspects will be investigated and action will be taken after the investigation happens.
