ISLAMABAD: The father-in-law of cricketer Kamran Akmal has sent a legal notice to former wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider for leveling betting allegations against him.
The notice was sent trough Akmal’s father-in-law’s lawyer, Badruzaman Advocate, who told the media that his client had demanded that Haider apologise within a week or pay one hundred million rupees for leveling baseless allegations.
Haider, who was served the legal notice on his return to Pakistan, had earlier claimed that Akmal’s father-in-law had contacts with bookies.
Pakistan’s absconding wicket-keeper Zulqarnain Haider had ended his exile and returned to Pakistan on Monday, after Interior Minister Rehman Malik had assured him of proper security.
Haider had deserted the team in Dubai during the Pakistan-South Africa one-day series, fleeing to London after claiming to have received threatening messages from an unknown source. He recently also said that he would be disclosing the people who were threatening him.
