Ahmadabad: Four Kashmiris were detained near Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmadabad Gujarat on Wednesday on the basis of “suspicious activity” and freed hours after questioning by the Crime Branch officials.

In a statement, the convenor of the Jammu and Kashmir Students Association Nasir Khuehami said that four youths from Kashmir were detained by police after they were seen “moving suspiciously” near Narendra Modi Stadium ( Montera Area).

They were detained near Motera area, because of their “suspicious movement” near Narendra Modi stadium where the T-20 match between India and New Zealand will be played today, however, they were released after police didn’t find anything suspicious from them, Khuehami said while quoting Mitesh Trivedi, police investigating officer.

Khuehami identified the youth as Ghulam Mohammad, Irshad Hussain, Nissar Ahmed, Shabir Ahmed and all are residents of Budgam district in central Kashmir. After ascertaining the facts, the youth were released by the police. It was found that they had traveled from Kashmir to Gujarat to watch the upcoming India-New Zealand Match and are innocent.

Gujarat Police as a goodwill gesture treated the boys very well and arranged accommodation and tickets for youth so that they can enjoy the cricket Match, the association added.
