Babar Azam, who was recently named Pakistan's Test captain, seems to be in all sorts of trouble after a lady named Hamiza Mukhatar filed a case against the cricketer for allegedly abusing her physically, and mentally.
Hamiza, a few days back, hogged all limelights by making severe accusations on Pakistan's all-format skipper. The lady, in her statement, reckoned that she and Babar were classmates and fell in love with each other even before Babar decided to become a cricketer.
Hamiza also claimed that the 26-year-old had proposed to her for marriage in 2010 and both had left their homes to live together. However, she claimed that instead of marrying her, he abused her physically and mentally for years.
“The person who has been doing the wrong with me is none other than Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team. I am related to Babar from the time when he was not a known person in the cricket world,” she had told 24NewsHD.
“I and Babar grew up in the same society, we used to stay together and we were school friends. In 2010, he proposed to me at my place and I accepted it. As time went along, my understanding with him deepened and we even had plans of getting married. But our families were against it. So, we decided on court marriage.”
“In 2011, he helped me flee from my place, and promising me of court marriage, he used to keep me in rented places. I requested Babar to get married, but he kept delaying it,” the lady had added.
Hamiza had filed a case in the court of Additional District and Session Judge Numan Muhammad Naeem. The Session Judge Abid Raza heard her petition and asked the police to give their justification on the claims made by Hamiza.
The young lady, in her statement also revealed that Babar had urged him to withdraw the police complaint on marriage re-assurance. However, he refused to marry her after getting fame in the cricket fraternity and when she again approached the Naseerabad Police Station, they refused to register her statement.
Having said that, the Session Court has now warned Babar Azam and his family against harassing the lady for taking back her complaint, as per news.com.pak.
