However, before they could succeed in their deadly design and damage the 22-yard territory on which the match between Gujarat Lions and Royal Challengers Bangalore is to be played today, they were evicted by the State Reserve Police and the SCA security personnel.

The SCA officials informed the police about the incident and beefed up the security inside and outside the stadium.
