LAHORE (INP): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials said on Tuesday that PCB’s inquiry committee will travel to UK to investigate the matter of Nasir Jamshed’s involvement in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) spot-fixing scandal.
In a TV interview, a PCB official said that a two-member inquiry committee has been formed to question Jamshed. It is pertinent to mention that the board had suspended Jamshed on the suspicion of being involved in the spot fixing scandal that shook PSL.
According to the official, PCB`s anti-corruption unit chief Col (retd) Azam and board’s legal manager Salman Naseer will travel to UK to investigate the matter as soon as they receive their visa confirmation. Jamshed was also investigated by National Crime Agency in UK and his passport was withheld by the authorities when he was granted bail.
PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan had accused Jamshed of having contacts with English bookies and introducing the two main accused in the PSL scandal to a fixer. Shahryar Khan claimed Jamshed was the one who introduced Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif to a bookie under the pretext that he was a fan. On the other hand Pakistan Super League (PSL) chairman Najam Sethi has claimed that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) never asked Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to conduct investigations against the players who are allegedly involved in spot-fixing.
Najam Sethi said that PCB only requested FIA to authenticate the data that was recovered from phones of these players. Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan later took notice of this case himself and directed FIA to start interrogation, added Sethi. PSL chief further made the issue complex by saying that any investigation of such kind is against the laws of International Cricket Council (ICC). Najam Sethi also blamed media for complicating this case.
