Sohaib Maqsood and Amir Yamin claim on social media that Sakrand police solicited bribes as they traveled from Karachi to Multan.
KARACHI: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-Nov 28th, 2023) In a recent incident, the Sindh police apprehended four officers accused of accepting bribes from Pakistani cricketers during their road journey.
Maqsood detailed the encounter, stating, “Travelling from Karachi to Multan, Sindh police stopped us after 50 km, demanding money. Despite explaining that we are international cricketers returning from a match in Karachi, they took 8,000 rupees and let us go. Corruption at its peak in Sindh police,”.
The reports suggested that the implicated officers have been arrested, and a case has been filed against them.
The Shaheed Benazirabad DIG, in an inquiry report, confirmed the cricketers' claims, saying that the incident occurred on the superhighway between 12 am and 1 am on Monday night.
