Indian cricketer Arshdeep Singh made headlines on Sunday evening during match against Pakistan for all the wrong reason. The left-arm pacer was heavily trolled for dropping an easy catch while match was hanging by thread. Arshdeep's misfielding turned out to be costly for Men in Blue as it provided a second chance to Asif Ali who played a blinder for Pakistan in second innings.
While several cricketers came out in support of the Indian pacer including Virat Kohli, the matter became more serious when Arshdeep Singh's Wikipedia page was edited by an anonymous person and started reflecting his Khalistan association after India lost to Pakistan in Asia Cup match on Sunday.
As reported by Economic Times, IT ministry of the Indian government has intervened in the manner and sought explanation from top-brass of Wikipedia by issuing a show-cause notice. The report quoted a senior government official claiming that edits have been traced back to servers in neighboring countries. "The issue is very serious and can have grave consequences. We are not taking it lightly. We will ask the Wikipedia executives how such an edit could be allowed to stay on for quite some time," claimed government official.
Meanwhile, a verified Twitter user who who goes by the name @AskAnshul has made a sensational claim stating that the Wikipedia page of Indian Player Arshdeep Singh has been edited Khalistan deliberately added by somebody from Pakistan. He has also posted the IP address of the person who edited Arshdeep Singh's Wikipedia bio.
Notably, it was Team India's first defeat in Asia Cup 2022. The Rohit Sharma-led side will next face Sri Lanka on September 6 in a must-win game.
