Police have registered the FIR under Sections 153, 153A, 295, 505 of IPC, besides sections 3 (1) (r) and 3 (1) (s) of SC/ST Act. The FIR comes 8 months after an advocate from Hisar filed a police complaint against the cricketer for his 'casteist comments'. Yuvraj allegedly made the 'casteist remark' during a live Instagram session with India's opener Rohit Sharma in June 2020. The former World Cup winner all-rounder had issued an apology, saying he never believed in disparity. Yuvraj had taken to Twitter and apologised for "unintentionally hurting sentiments" of a particular society of people. "This is to clarify I have never believed in any kind of disparity, be it on the basis of caste, colour, creed or gender. I have given and continue to spend my life for the welfare of people. I believe in the dignity of life and respect each individual without exception," Yuvraj Singh said in his post. "I understand that while I was having a conversation with my friends, I was misunderstood, which was unwarranted. However, as a responsible Indian I want to say that if I have unintentionally hurt anybody's sentiments or feelings, I would like to express regret for the same." Yuvraj had made the comments when talking about India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's TikTok videos.Also Read- BCCI unveils Team India's new jersey ahead of T20 World Cup
