Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Nov 27 (ANI): Chennai Police arrested two men, after a video went viral that showed the accused harassing and mocking a few girls during an ISL match between Chennaiyin FC and NorthEast United FC at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, here.

The two accused, Vijay and Karthik, have been sent to judicial custody.

The video showed them mockingly dancing and showing ludicrous signs in front of the girls during the match, making them feel very uncomfortable.
