A case of indecent assault with a female cricketer has come to light in Pakistan. A national level coach has been suspended in this case. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) responded to the player’s complaint. Multan area coach Nadeem Iqbal did this deed. Iqbal played with former Pakistan captain and famous fast bowler Waqar Younis.
The cricketer has made allegations against Nadeem. Taking action on the matter, the Pakistan Cricket Board first suspended the coach and then launched an investigation. Nadeem made his first class debut in the team Waqar Younis played for. Nadeem took 258 wickets in 80 first-class matches. At the same time, he won 65 wickets in 49 List A matches. At one point, he was considered a better bowler than Waqar.
What did the PCB say?
Confirming the case, a PCB official said: ‘We have started an investigation into this matter. Our investigation team will find out if Nadeem has violated the terms of employment. We can’t do a criminal investigation. The police will.”
What did the victim say?
The victim also filed a complaint with the police. The victim said that she had traveled to Multan a few years ago to take part in the trial of the PCB women. Nadeem was one of many coaches present. When the video was released, the victim said, “He promised to select me on the team and get a job on the board. After that, he approached me. He had the used to sexually abuse me. It also included some friends. I made my video and blackmailed me.
There were also allegations against Yasir Shah
This is not the first time this has happened in Pakistani cricket. In 2014, five young female players accused officials of a private cricket club in Multan of sexual abuse. Last year, Pakistan Test team spinner Yasir Shah was also accused of sexually abusing a young woman. Charges against Yasir were dropped, but the case against his friend is still pending in court.
