Arshdeep Singh’s Wikipedia page was vandalised to show Khalistan link. It was later fixed.
According to the edit history of Singh’s Wikipedia page, an unregistered user replaced the words “India” with “Khalistan” at several locations on the profile at 12:28am India Standard Time (IST).
The name was also changed “Major Arshdeep Singh Langra” and, a minute later, to “Major Arshdeep Singh Bajwa”. The IP address being used was 188.8.131.52 and the IP address was like in use in Pakistan.
Wikipedia page of Team India cricketer #ArshdeepSingh edited and the word ‘Khalistan’ added deliberately. The IP details show it’s happening from Pakistan. After Mohd Shami Pakistan sponsored social media handles now targeting young Arshdeep. Where is the sportsmanship? pic.twitter.com/bSRDTuHmeP— Sudhir Chaudhary (@sudhirchaudhary) September 5, 2022
