Going viral: Young fan sobs after India loses Champions Trophy finals

Speaking to journalists after attending an event here on Tuesday, Afridi said: "What Sarfraz and his team have done will go down in history".

Sanjay Pathak, a local police inspector said the men from Mohad village "were celebrating Pakistan's victory by bursting firecrackers and shouting anti-India slogans", CNN reported.

In India, sedition is an offence which may result in the surrender of passports, ineligibility for government jobs, and even life imprisonment.

The action was taken against the 15 men following a complaint by a villager that the accused burst crackers and distributed candies among villagers, besides raising pro-Pakistan slogans at Mohad village (375 km from Bhopal).

Investigation officer R.K.Yadav said that he received initial information about the celebrations from a citizen named Subhash Laxman.

Brexit talks begin in Brussels
We want to find the best solution for them and their families, "said Michel Barnier , the EU's chief negotiator for Brexit ". Indices wise, both the FTSE 100 and the DAX 30 paid little attention to the talks and maintained their bullish trend.

In 2014, a group of 67 college students from Kashmir were charged with sedation while watching an India-Pakistan clash at a campus hostel in Uttar Pradesh, though the charges were eventually dropped.

The men were denied bail in Madhya Pradesh state after appearing in court where they were charged with sedition.

For a country that has not played global cricket at home against any top cricketing nation, the Champions Trophy triumph was necessary to "identify their heroes", feels Pakistan's chief coach Mickey Arthur.

In 2016, a Pakistani man was arrested after he waved an Indian flag when his idol, Indian batsman Virat Kohli, made a century.

In a country where cricket is widely celebrated and cricketers are hailed as gods, this defeat, from arch-rivals Pakistan, was a big blow for India. Famous Pakistan builder Riaz Malik has also promised one million rupees each besides giving them plots of land. Action is being taken on this front too, he said, without explaining.
