The Gurgaon police arrested four Shiv Sena members for creating a ruckus during the performance of Pakistani artistes during a play in sector 29’s open theatre Saturday evening. They accused were identified as Ajay, Gautam, Sumit and Jitu — all residents of Gurgaon. They had barged into the venue shouting anti-Pakistan slogans and disrupted the performance. They also climbed onto the stage and removed Pakistani flags.


They have been held under sections 451 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code. “Acting on a complaint by Municipal Corporation Public Relations Officer Satbir Rohilla, regarding criminal trespass by a group of people in a cultural programme organised by the municipal corporation on Saturday evening, involving artistes from Pakistan, the Gurgaon police have registered an FIR against four persons,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Deepak Saharan on Sunday.

The play ‘Banjh’ by seven Pakistani artistes, including two women, was a part of the MCG’s weekly cultural programme. It resumed after the interruption. The MCG, meanwhile, has claimed that all the artistes were registered with the Foreign Relations Office, Gurgaon.
