Yuvraj Singh.

Former cricketer Yuvraj Singh was arrested and then released on bail in Haryana on Saturday, the police said.

“As per court orders, Yuvraj Singh was arrested and then released on interim bail on Saturday,” Nitika Gahlaut, a senior police officer in Haryana’s Hansi, told NDTV.

The activist, Rajat Kalsan, said, “On October 6, the police was asked to include Yuvraj Singh in the probe. We have learnt that yesterday, Yuvraj Singh surrendered before the police in Hisar, he was questioned for two to three hours and then arrested. He was then released on bail bonds.”

“The police will submit its final report in a few days in the SC/ST court in Hisar and Yuvraj Singh will have to take regular bail from there. He will have to attend the hearings at the court in Hisar. We will do our best to prove his guilt since he has insulted the whole community,” he said.

“Also, since the bail was given to him under the SC/ST Act, we are challenging it in the Supreme Court and hopefully you will see him behind bars,” Mr Kalsan added.
