Ramiz Raja visibly displeased breaks silence on Yasir Shah’s alleged involvement in a rape case!
PCB chief said that the prominent players of the country like Yasir getting accused of aiding an alleged crime are “not good” for cricket.
Ramiz while addressing a press conference in Karachi said, “It is a no-brainer, Yasir is a circuit player and while we train and educate these players, they are in ambassadorial positions and should know with whom and where to socialise,”
“I don’t know what the truth is in this case but it is a fact that such headlines are not good for Pakistan cricket and especially at a time when there is a feel-good factor going through Pakistan cricket now.”
Ramiz Raja said that the incident has shaken efforts being made by the PCB to project a positive image of Pakistan on the international stage.
The case was registered against Yasir Shah on December 19 on the complaint of a woman at Islamabad’s Shalimar police station.
According to the FIR, Yasir Shah helped his friend Farhan despite knowing he had raped and made objectionable videos of their 14-year old niece.
In the filed application, the aggrieved girl alleged that Shah’s friend kidnapped her at gunpoint, raped her, made videos of her, and later made threats to her.
She said they threatened her to keep her mouth shut or they would make her videos public.
