New Delhi: An advocate has filed a complaint at north Delhi's Roop Nagar Police Station on Tuesday against British rock band Coldplay for allegedly dishonouring the national flag during their performance at the Global Citizen Festival in Mumbai.
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.
With the aim to encourage more active participation from people across the globe, Global Citizen Festival's CEO Huge Evans said that they are planning to launch a new app within few weeks.
The much-talked about Global Citizen India Festival concert headlined by British rock band Coldplay looks to stand cancelled, even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has turned down the invite to appear as a guest of the event.

While Chris Martin and AR Rahman took the cake because of their rendition of 'Vande Maataram', Modi made an impact too.
