Luxor prosecution detains four over bullying Zamalek player Shikabala
Published in Ahram Online on 01 - 12 - 2020

Luxor's prosecution ordered four people detained for four days pending investigation in the case bullying 34-year-old Zamalek football skipper Mahmoud "Shikabala" Abdel-Razek following Ahly's 2-1 triumph against their Cairo archrivals on Friday in the African Champions League final.
A video circulated on social media after the game, which many deemed as racist, showed some Ahly fans in Luxor's Salah Al-Deen Square carrying a black dog wearing a Zamalek t-shirt and chanting "Shika", in reference to the dark-skinned player.
The defendants' identities were determined by authorities after surveillance cameras around the square were checked, a security source at Luxor security directorate said earlier.
On Sunday, police also arrested 11 people in Itay Al-Barud village in Beheira governorate for uploading a video to social media showing them holding a mock funeral for the Egypt international.
A security statement on the same day said the Ministry of Interior is also pursuing a number of people who are allegedly responsible for uploading photos insulting Ahly club and its players.
Many Egyptians, sports stars and public figures have publicly condemned the bullying against Shikabala on social media, expressing their support for the Zamalek star.
Ahly Chairman and iconic Egypt forward Mahmoud El-Khattib condemned all forms of abuse towards any player in a statement issued on Sunday.
