New Delhi: Shouting anti-Pakistan slogans, two supporters from Hindu Yuwak Sabha today attempted to invade the turf at the National Stadium, the venue where the opening Hockey India League match between Delhi Waveriders and Punjab Warriors was on.
However, the incident which occured in the 27th minute of the first half failed to deter the players from going ahead with the match.
The two activists of youth wing of Hindu Sena, after the Shiv Sena yesterday stopped the training session of the Mumbai Magicians which has five Pakistani players in its roster, were overpowered by the security officials and dragged out of the venue.
In the wake of mounting tension over Pakistan army killing two Indian soldiers, beheading one of them, Shiv Sena has demanded that all the Pakistan players in the HIL should be sent back.
The incident however was a big embarrassment for the HIL organizers as no one was able to explain as to how the security breach happened.
