ICC official in Indian flag row, FIR likely

Mohali: Punjab Police are likely to register an FIR against the International Cricket Council official who stomping on balloons shaped as the Indian flag in Mohali before the semi-final match between India and Pakistan on Wednesday.

A team of police officials from Mohali are examining the footage, which show the ICC official stomping on the Indian flag shaped balloons outside the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali.

The official snatched Indian flag shaped balloons from a street vendor and then stomped over the flags to deflate them.

After reporters, present near the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, objected to it, she apologised.

But she also said that the flags had an ICC logo, which was a copyright infringement.
