Gaurav Gulati, an advocate, has submitted a complaint against Coldplay and its frontman Chris Martin alleging, "They can be seen to dishonour our National Flag by tying it on the back of his jeans and dancing in objective positions (sic)."

"In the video/photo, it can be seen that the band had used our Indian National Flag to cover their musical instruments," he said.

Gulati said an FIR should be filed against the band and the singer for dishonouring the national flag during their performance in Mumbai on Saturday.

On Sunday, NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik had alleged that lead singer of the rock band has "disrespected" the Indian flag during the band's performance here.
