ISLAMABAD: Pakistani Test cricketer Yasir Shah on Wednesday has been declared innocent in a case pertaining to alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl.
According to details, Islamabad police have removed the name of Yasir Shah from the first information report (FIR) after the victim retracted from her previous statement.
The SHO Shalimar police station said that the cricketer has nothing to do with the assault case.
In December last year, the Islamabad police registered the case against Yasir for his alleged involvement in aiding the rape and harassment of a 14-year-old girl. The complainant alleged that Yasir’s friend, Farhan, raped her at gunpoint and also filmed her obscene video.
“The national cricketer and his friend also threatened her to share the video on social media,” the FIR said.
She claimed that Yasir also warned of embroiling her in a case if she approached the police. The FIR further stated that Yasir also used his influence to coerce the minor to marry his friend, Farhan.
