It is believed that sports transcends boundaries. The reason behind the same is that sports appeal to all people despite the scarcely-believable discrimination in social classes in today’s time. Fans from different social backgrounds and financial backgrounds come together to cheer for their teams.
However, such a belief has taken the back seat in Chennai. A city which has always been lauded for being smart is doing all possible things to tarnish its image. During the Chennai Super Kings’ first home game against Kolkata Knight Riders, some members had thrown shoes on the field.
On the very next day, the BCCI shifted all the remaining home games of the team to Pune due to the ongoing Cauvery water dispute.
The BCCI took the massive decision after the state board expressed its inability to ensure adequate security arrangements. The political parties organised large protests in the state over the staging of the IPL.
But despite that, the fans came in large numbers to support their beloved team. However, a couple of such fans have now paid the price for supporting their team. A latest video which is doing rounds on social media shows two fans being thrashed by the protesters. Not only did the protesters manhandled them but also tore their jerseys.
Here is a clip showing the fans being manhandled:
