Belongs to Uttar Pradesh
Sayam Jaishwal lives in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. He is doing business related to liquor. He went with his friends to watch the India-Pakistan match in Dubai. He wanted to watch the match in India jersey. But by the time he left, the Indian jerseys at the stadium and nearby shops were sold out. Thus there were only Pakistan jerseys.
Fan wearing Pakistan jersey
He then decided to buy a Pakistan jersey and support India by wearing it. And he thought it would be a little different for the fans of both countries in the stadium. Accordingly he bought a Pakistan jersey and wore it. He took a photo with the national flag of India in one hand and the flag of Pakistan in the other and posted it on social media.
The matter went to the police
These images spread rapidly. After this, people in his hometown Bareilly called Syam Jaiswal a supporter of Pakistan. Apart from that, they brought the incident to the attention of the police. Also, complaints were made through social media to the police officer asking him to take action. However, the police did not take any action in this regard.
Interpretation as no intention
Syam Jaiswal said about this, “I am still in Dubai. I tried to buy an India jersey. It is sold out and unavailable. I bought a Pakistan jersey and wore it just to show off. And while wearing this T-shirt, I chanted “Hindustan Zindabad” on the ground. Then Pakistani fans looked at me angrily. I did this to tease Pakistani fans. “There is no intention in this,” he said.
