Probe was today ordered into the incident of stone pelting that took place yesterday at a bus carrying the Australian cricket team from Barsapara stadium to their hotel. The Assam government ordered probe as the incident is of high intensity and took place following their T20 match against India.
The police have detained two persons for alleged involvement in the incident which followed India’s defeat in the second of the three-match T20I series.
Social media Facebook and Twitter were flooded with comments over the incident where people condemned the incident perpetrated by a few goons and said that no one should blame the people of Assam for the incident.
After the incident, Australian cricketer Aaron Finch tweeted: “Pretty scary having a rock thrown through the team bus window on the way back to hotel!!”
“Vow to take strictest action against the culprits. Investigation is on full swing and Police have already picked up 2 suspects,” tweeted Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.
“It is an unfortunate incident after a great game. It is aimed to tarnish Guwahati’s reputation as emerging sports hub. We strongly condemn it. People of Assam don’t approve this,” the Chief Minister tweeted on Wednesday.
