Yuvraj Singh arrested for ‘casteist remarks’, released on bail

In June 2020, Yuvraj Singh made a derogatory remark, though jokingly, about Chahal during an Instagram Live session with India opener Rohit

The Haryana Police on 17 said cricketer Yuvraj Singh was arrested and released on bail in an alleged casteist remarks case in compliance with a high court order. Singh was accused of making casteist remarks against another cricketer during an Instagram chat last year. Superintendent of Police (Hansi) Nitika Gahlaut said over the phone, “We only made a formal arrest and he was released on bail in compliance of the orders of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.”

“Yuvraj Singh came to Hansi on Saturday and we made a formal arrest. He was released on bail bond after a few hours,” DSP (Hansi) Vinod Shankar said.

While noting that the Haryana police is seeking only Singh’s “formal arrest” in the case, the high court had last week directed that upon joining the probe with the investigating officer, if the cricketer is arrested, he would be released on interim bail upon furnishing bail and surety bonds.

The high court was listening to a plea by the cricketer seeking quashing of an FIR filed against him earlier this year under sections of the IPC and the /ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act based on a complaint by lawyer Rajat Kalsan at the Hansi Police Station in Hisar.

Watch the here…

Yuvraj Singh had to make a public apology. He wrote:

This is to clarify I have never believed in any kind of disparity, be it on the basis of caste, colour, creed or gender. I have given and continue to spend my life for the welfare of people. I believe in the dignity of life and respect each individual without exception.

Kalsan had filed a police complaint last year, alleging that the comment by Yuvraj Singh had hurt the sentiments of the Dalit community and a large number of people had watched the video on social media.

Expressing regret for the comment, Singh had earlier tweeted:

I understand that while I was having a conversation with my friends, I was misunderstood, which was unwarranted. However, as a responsible Indian I want to say that if I have unintentionally hurt anybody’s sentiments or feelings, I would like to express regret for the same.
