Pakistan Super League's (PSL) official production company, India's IMG-Reliance, also pulled out of its agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board to live-produce the ongoing games of the fourth edition. "Don't forget, former prime minister Indira Gandhi and the Indian army liberated Bangladesh by dividing Pakistan into two and that 91,000 Pakistani soldiers had surrendered before the Indian army in Dhaka", Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said after Imran Khan threatened to retaliate if India attacks in response to the Pulwama attack.

Forty CRPF personnel were killed in the terror attack on their convoy on Srinagar-Jammu national highway on February 14. Alongside, a photo of the Pakistani PM with his teammates, which was placed on the CCI walls was also removed.

The Pulwama terror attack which resulted in the death of 40 CRPF jawans has impacted India and Pakistan cricket relations in a big way. And now, Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) has also followed suit. The photos were removed from the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Tuesday, ANI reported.
