Indore (Madhya Pradesh) [India], Nov 17 (ANI): Police have apprehended the man who broke the security cordon and entered the ground during the India-Bangladesh Test at Holkar Stadium allegedly to meet Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli, said Additional Superintendent of Police, Anil Patidar.
"The person who entered the cricket field was a big fan of Virat Kohli. He has been apprehended and there is an investigation going on. He has been identified as Suraj Bisht," Patidar told ANI here on Saturday.
"Prima facie it looks like he was just going to meet Kohli as he is a big fan but was caught by the security on the ground," Patidar added.
He was wearing a T-shirt with Kohli's name printed on it, had a tattoo of Kohli's name on his arm, and 'VK' was written on his face.
The police official added that the person used to work as a cook, and his ticket had been seized by the authorities.
