Pro-Palestine pitch invader arrested during Cricket World Cup final

Gujarat Police’s Crime Branch on Sunday has arrested a pro-Palestinian supporter who allegedly breached security to enter the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, where the India vs Australia final match is being held at present.

The man in a t-shirt that said ‘stop bombing Palestine’ on one side and ‘free Palestine’ on the other, also appeared to hold a pride flag in his hand, which has been reported by some news organisations as a Palestine flag.

The man was in a mask – also with the Palestine flag on it – and appeared to want to embrace star batsman Virat Kohli, who was batting with K.L. Rahul at that point, during the 14th over of the match. He was led away by security persons.

The man who entered the stadium has been brought to the Chandkheda Police Station in Ahmedabad for further questioning, news agency ANI reported.
