Breaking rules and breaching the security cover seem to have become a habit for Yuvraj Singh. Chandigarh Police has again sent a written complaint to the Kings XI Punjab management and Indian Premier League (IPL) authorities after the star cricketer slipped away from the team’s hotel without informing the security officer.
"Yuvraj had gone out of the hotel late Tuesday night without informing the security in-charge. It could lead to a major problem. He is breaching the security cover repeatedly," H.S. Doon, superintendent of police (security), Chandigarh, told IANS Thursday.
"Forces have been deployed 24 hours for their (cricketers) security and such things are intolerable," he said.
Doon added: "Besides informing his team franchisee Wednesday, we also apprised the IPL officials in Mumbai about the issue. We have told them to take appropriate action to curb such incidents."
The Kings XI Punjab team is staying at hotel Mountview in Sector 10 here. It was outplayed by Rajasthan Royals Wednesday night in an IPL match at Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) stadium in neighbouring town Mohali by a margin of 31 runs.
The Chandigarh police had accused Yuvraj of flouting the security norms before another IPL match against Delhi Daredevils March 12. Yuvraj and another player V.R.V. Singh had slipped away from the hotel without informing the security officials(Reuters)
