JKCA demands apology from police

Srinagar: The cricket association of Jammu and Kashmir sought an apology from Bangalore police for arresting two of its players in Bangalore where they had gone to participate in a national championship.

"Our boys were harassed and then released. The Bangalore police should apologise for the harassment of players. The JKCA will decide on Sunday, whether or not the team should withdraw from the tournament," general secretary of JKCA Saleem Khan said.

Parvez Rasool, a Under-22 cricketer from the militancy-hit state, was detained this morning from a room in the Karnataka State Cricket Association stadium after detectors found traces of RDX in his kit bag.

Demanding an apology from the Karnataka Police, Saleem Khan, secretary of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association alleged that their cricketers were harassed by the police.

"I don't think they have any links. They have been playing for the last 4-5 seasons. They have been going to all states of the country. We are in touch with the team but the harassment is hundred percent.
