Babar Azam accused of abuse and sexual violence


Lahore, 29th November: A woman from Lahore has come forward and alleged the Pakistani cricketer Babar Azam of abuse and sexual violence. 

Baaghi TV: While addressing a press conference, the woman named Hamiza, claimed that she was Azam’s neighbour and old school mate. She added that the young cricketer tricked her into love and marriage.

“When I asked him to marry me, he tortured me,” she said.

Hamiza said that she had financially supported Azam when he was struggling with his career, adding that she spent millions of rupees on him.

She further revealed that Azam had been sexually abusing her for the last 10 years and had been insulting her constantly using abusive language.

“When I called the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to lodge a complaint, they said that it was a personal matter,” she continued.

According to Jang News, when questioned about the allegations, PCB’s Director of Media and Communications Sami-ul-Hassan said that this was Babar’s private matter and the board could not comment on it.

During Saturday’s press conference, the woman’s lawyer said that an FIR had been lodged with the Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Lahore regarding the matter but no action was taken.

Hamiza’s petition is now pending at the Sessions Court, which is scheduled for a hearing on December 4. The sexual harassment case will be heard on December 5.

Babar Azam, who is in New Zealand for a three-match T20I series and a two-match Test series, could not be reached for a comment on the matter.
