It is untrue that the team entered the property without any residential consent.”Indian authorities physically restrained and detained the team without arrest for over 15 hours after they perceived the footage to be an ‘act of endangering their own lives’.”The group was unaware of the existence of such a law, and given the fact they were in Mumbai on an invitation to speak and perform at Asia’s biggest conference this coming Sunday, December 2, did not know that sport of parkour would fall under this.”No prosecution was made against any of the members involved in the short clip and the team left Mumbai on Wednesday [November 28] morning.Storror are professional athletes and experts in the field of parkour. They have been doing what they love together for the last 12 years without any problems, travelling the world and inspiring millions. The events that transpired on Tuesday night were unfortunate and we believe pressure from Indian media heavily influenced the situation resulting in an outcome far greater than anyone had expected.advertisement”Please note a correction to information circulating – They were not arrested, prosecuted, or deported.
