Assam: Who knew wearing Shahid Afridi’s jersey could land you in jail; Pak cricketer slams the move
Guwahati, Dec 22: Ripon Chowdhury, 21, was arrested on Sunday in Hailakandi, in Assam, for wearing a jersey bearing the Pakistani cricketer's name which apparently angered a right-wing nationalist group.
The group then filed an FIR against him citing the act as anti-national.
Afridi slamming the move said, "It was shameful to arrest a fan for wearing my shirt. Such incidents don't suit civilised people."
Afridi said fans in both India and Pakistan put the sport above the often-fraught relations between their countries and admired each others' players.
