The Ahmedabad Crime Branch and city police detained four Kashmiri youths from the Motera area for allegedly suspicious activity near the Narendra Modi Stadium.
Deputy Commissioner of Crime Branch, Chetainya Mandlik, said that the CB team and the local police detained the four Kashmiri youths from the Motera area because of their “suspicious movement” near Narendra Modi Stadium late on Monday night.
He said that the four youths, all of whom are from Budgam near Srinagar, are being questioned about their presence in Ahmedabad.
Near the stadium area, they were found where ordinary citizens are not permitted to move. They had previously visited and stayed in a mosque in the Palanpur area. They had checked into the Haj house this time after arriving in Ahmedabad.
The T20 international match between India and New Zealand scheduled to take place at the stadium on February 1 led the police to suspect their movements. Both teams have arrived in the city and are practicing at the stadium.
