Yuvraj Singh has been released on bail.
The former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh was reportedly arrested by the Hansi Police in Haryana on Saturday, 16 October, in a case lodged against him for using a casteist slur against Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
As being reported by the Indian media, Yuvraj was interrogated for three hours before being released on interim bail.
Singh is reported to be arrested under Section 153A and Section 505 of the Indian Penal Code.
The development comes in the line with the incident that dates back to June 2020 when Yuvraj made a derogatory remark, although jokingly, towards Chahal during an Instagram Live session with India opener Rohit Sharma.
While speaking with Sharma about Chahal’s famous Tik-Tok and Instagram videos, Yuvraj made an indecent remark, which was casteist in nature, aimed at the RCB leggie, reports ANI.
