The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reacted to the allegations of sexual abuse made against the Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam.
The PCB Director of Media and Communications, Samiul Hassan, said that the allegations made against Azam were personal so the board could not comment on it.
Last week, a woman named Hamiza made serious allegations against the cricketer in a press conference held at Lahore Press Club. She accused Babar of sexual misconduct.
Hamiza said that she and Babar were in a relationship ten years ago, and the star batsman sexually abused her. She claimed that Babar, who was 16 at the time of the incident, had eloped with her and they lived in various places in Lahore.
She said, “I financially supported the cricketer during the early days of his career, and when I asked him to marry me, he kept avoiding the marriage.”
The woman added an FIR was also registered regarding the issue, but no action had been taken.
She has now filed a petition in the sessions court in Lahore, the hearing for which is set for the 5th of December.
Azam is currently with the national cricket team on the tour of New Zealand. The team is scheduled to play three T20 and two Test matches, starting from the 18th of December.
