India's Under-19 captain, Ishan Kishan has been arrested by the Patna Police on Tuesday for a reported case of reckless driving. Kishan was allegedly reported to have crashed into an autorickshaw and injuring the people inside the vehicle. The 17-year-old was also purported to have misbehaved with people who were around the site of the accident.
The Patna police arrested the Jharkhand player as well all those who were involved in the brawl. Kishan's car was also seized by the police.
Although Kishan is a native of Navada district in Bihar, the 17-year-old plies his trade in the domestic circuit for Jharkhand, the state from which the Indian limited-overs captain, MS Dhoni hails. Kishan moved to play for Jharkhand after the cricket body of Bihar lost its affiliation with the BCCI.
Kishan was named as the captain of the Under-19 squad in December 2015 after his excellent performances for the junior squad as well as in domestic competitions. The Under-19 World Cup is scheduled to be held in Bangladesh and starts on January 27. India Under-19 play their first match against Ireland Under-19 on January 28.
