Former Pakistan captain Imran Khan’s portrait has been removed from the Cricket Club of India in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack. The current Pakistan Prime Minister’s portrait was placed in the All rounder restaurant in the club. A photograph of Imran Khan with his national teammates, which was on one of the walls of the club, has also been removed.

On Thursday, at least 40 CRPF paramilitary troopers were killed in a terror attack while several others are battling for their lives following what is being termed as the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir.

“We know which country is behind the terror attack. It was decided that the sentiments of the people of the country were to be upheld and therefore the move to remove his portrait,” a senior committee member told India Today.
