After an 11-hour long investigation, the Indian police have finally cracked the case of ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans in New Delhi.

Police had detained two men and three women following the reports that they were heard chanting ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans. However, after investigations, it was revealed that the slogans were raised in a “lighter vein” as a part of a cycling game near Delhi’s Khan Market metro station on late Saturday night.

The police said that they have not registered a case against them following the investigation.


“Ahead of Republic Day, police said, they were on high alert when they received a call around 1 am about a group shouting slogans, praising Pakistan,” Indian Express reported.

“Two families…had rented Yulu bikes they were racing, and they had named each other after countries like India, Pakistan, Japan and Australia. They were cheering each other on by shouting these names when some locals heard them shout, ‘Pakistan zindabad’,” the report quoted the police officials as saying.


During interrogation, police found the family had named the 14-year-old boy ‘Pakistan’ during the game, the newspaper reported.

“When the boy was slow, others, which included his parents, shouted ‘Pakistan haar gaya… peechhe reh gaya,’ and when the boy started speeding, they cheered him with ‘Pakistan Zindabad’,” said the officer.

However, following the questioning, all of them were allowed to leave.
