Kohli's die-hard Pakistani fan granted bail


Submitted by alvin on Sat, 2016-02-27 13:57 Karachi: The die-hard Pakistani fan of Virat Kohli, who was arrested last month for hoisting the Indian flag on the rooftop of his house, has been granted bail by a court. According to the Dawn, the Additional district and Sessions court in Okara admitted bail plea of Umer Daraz, whose initial bail plea was rejected by a local magistrate last week. The court also ordered Daraz to furnish a surety bond worth Rs 50,000. Daraz was celebrating Kohli's knock of 90 not out, which set up India's 37-run win in the first of three Twenty20 internationals against Australia in January. Police arrested Daraz after conducting a raid on his home and registered a case under the Maintenance of Public Order. The detained man then revealed that he was fan of India's Test captain Kohli and that he had photographs of the swashbuckling batsman pasted on the walls of his house. Daraz also said that he had no idea that he had committed a blunder by hoisting the Indian flag. (ANI)
