FIA summons Shoaib Akhtar over Rizvi spat

Sports

June 4, 2020

LAHORE: Fast bowling legend Shoaib Akhtar has reportedly been summoned by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) cyber crime wing in connection with his spat with Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) legal adviser Tafazzul Rizvi. Akhtar, as per reports, has been ordered to pay them a visit on coming Friday at 11.00 am. In April, Akhtar and Rizvi had clashed after the former, in a YouTube rant, had accused the latter of deliberately pitting PCB against players in order to profit off of their wrangles. Rizvi, in response, had sent a legal notice of Rs10m to Akhtar and also filed a complaint with the FIA, alleging that Akhtar's "inappropriate" remarks were defamatory and intended to stain his legal career. Meanwhile, Akhtar's camp has denied receiving any FIA notice. "My client has not received any notice from the FIA," his lawyer Abuzar Salman Niazi said. "If a notice is received, we will respond with a reasonable answer."
