ISL 2020: Chennaiyin FC official arrested after trying to enter stadium with illegal drugs
A Chennaiyin FC official, on Saturday, was arrested by Goa Police during the final of the Indian Super League (ISL) at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.
As per a report in Goa News Hub, in Fatorda police station incharge Kapil Nayak said that Bhushan Bagadia, an official photographer and social media handler of Chennaiyin FC team who hails from Bengaluru, was arrested for possessing banned substance.
Chennaiyin were taking on ATK FC in a fight to take home the title and thus, become the most successful club in ISL history. However, one of Chennaiyin’s officials, a photographer cum social media handler, was found to carry 24 gms of marijuana in his bag. Bagadia was caught with the banned narcotics when he was frisked at the VIP gate.
He was booked under Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, and was later released on bail later in the night.
Meanwhile, on the pitch, Chennaiyin were handed quite the defeat by ATK, who went on to lift their third title. Two goals from Javi Hernandez and another from Edu Garcia, meant Owen Coyle’s men lost 3-1 to the Kolkata side on a night that was certainly not their’s.
“We were the team that played all the football. To be fair to them they stuck to their task. They made it tough for us by banging the ball forward. The spoils went to ATK so all the very best to them. We were the team who kept pushing on, but they were clinical and we were not,” Coyle went out saying in the post-match press conference.
