New Delhi: The Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology on Monday summoned Wikipedia executives in India to seek an explanation on how Indian cricket team bowler Arshdeep Singh’s Wikipedia page entry was changed to reflect ‘Khalistan’ association.

Wikipedia executives may be questioned regarding the lapses and the measures in place to avoid such issues. The ministry is likely to issue a show cause notice to the Wikipedia executives, reported Economic Times.

Pertinently on Sunday, Singh dropped a catch of Pakistan batter Asif Ali during the 18th over of their Asia Cup 2022 match following which he became the target of online trolls.
