Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was arrested on Sunday in Haryana’s Hisar district over his casteist remarks against leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal. Hansi city police station has registered a case against Singh. However, he was immediately granted bail and released on the orders of the High Court.

In a live chat with Rohit Sharma last year, Singh was accused of making derogatory remarks against the scheduled castes, targeting Chahal. Dalit rights activist Rajat Kalsan filed a case against him under various sections.
