Aussie fans get into trouble over slogans

Mohali:

A group of Australian fans, who came to watch the Mohali Test match against India, were hauled up by the police over their "Beer with Mahatma" inscription on their T-shirts.

"Today, we found some Australian fans wearing these T-shirts. The slogans written were Beer with Mahatma, Bets with Gupta, Dancing with Indira and still getting runs. We took strong objection to it and summoned them," a senior police official said.

He said the Aussie fans were summoned to the camp office Mohali police had set up inside the stadium for the match and were asked to explain the matter.

"The fans said the slogan had been given to them by one of their Sri Lankan friends. They apologised before us, saying their intention was not to hurt anyone's sentiments. We let them off with a warning and sent them to their hotel to get their dresses changed," he said.
