Indian army has reportedly denied access to a broadcast crew returning back to India after covering the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 that came to an unfortunate end after a sharp rise in Coronavirus cases in the country.
According to reports, a group of 29 Indian sports journalists was stopped and denied entry into their country at the Wagah-Attari border crossing by the Indian army.

Indian army high-ups have directed all 29 members of the broadcast crew to head to Dubai first and then catch a direct flight for India.
However, the broadcast crew has requested the Indian government to grant them entry from Wagah-Attari border crossing as going to Dubai during the pandemic could expose them to the Coronavirus. The crew has also pledged to undergo self-quarantine for 14 days once they step into India.
Ankit Rawat, one of the members of the crew abandoned by the Indian Army, took to Twitter to describe the ordeal.
