4 Shiv Sainiks arrested for disrupting play by Pak artists in Gurgaon

October 25, 2015 17:44 IST

Four alleged Shiv Sena activists were on Sunday arrested for disrupting a drama staged by some Pakistani actors in Gurgaon. Acting on a complaint by Municipal Corporation public relations officer Satbir Rohilla, Gurgaon police registered a first information report against the four persons belonging to the Shiv Sena, a police spokesperson said.

All the four accused persons, identified as Ajay, Gautam, Sumit and Jitu, have been arrested by the police, the spokesperson said.

Around 5-6 young men claiming to be Shiv Sainiks on Saturday climbed atop the stage at an open air theatre in Gurgaon, on Delhi's outskirts, where a group of seven Pakistani actors were staging a play "Banjh" (infertile).

"They shouted slogans like 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' and 'Pakistan Murdabad' and disrupted the show for about 5-10 minutes," Rohilla had said.

The incident comes days after the Shiv Sena forced cancellation of ghazal singer Ghulam Ali's musical performance in Mumbai as part of their campaign against personalities from the neighbouring country.

The Sena works had also recently blackened the face of former BJP leader Sudheendra Kulkarni in Mumbai when he refused to cancel the book launch of former Pakistani Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri in Mumbai.
