Srinagar: A video of a cricket team in green jersey lip syncing the Pakistan national anthem with reverence at a place not far away from Srinagar has gone viral on social media prompting the state police to launch a probe.

"Yes, we hope to arrest them sooner or later. These youth have fled from their homes and we will soon get them," Fayaz Lone, SSP Ganderbal told News18. "A speedy investigation is on in the case."

The video was from a match which took place between two clubs in the central Kashmir district of Ganderbal though police are trying to get more details about the playground where it was.

Sources said the match was played at a playground in central Kashmir a few days ago when separatists had called for a bandh. Schools and colleges were closed that day.

The players were all wearing the Pakistani jersey and standing with their hands to their heart as they rendered the Pakistani national anthem which blared from a loud-hailer.

The commentator even announced just ahead of the match that the Pakistani national anthem would be played as a “mark of respect.” When the anthem was played, both teams stood in attention facing each other across a matting pitch.

“We wanted to show fellow Kashmiris that we haven’t forgotten the Kashmir issue, so we played the anthem," one of the players was reported to have said.

The video clip has gone viral on social media and police are now police is trying to trace who the organisers and the players were.
