JKCA demands apology from Bangalore Police
Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association today termed as "shocking and unfortunate" the detention of a young cricketer in Bangalore after traces of explosives were found from his kit bag and sought an apology from the Bangalore Police, who later released the player for lack of evidence.
Parvez Rasool, a Under-22 cricketer from the
militancy-hit state, was detained this morning from a room in
the Karnataka State Cricket Association stadium after
detectors found traces of RDX in his kit bag.
Demanding an apology from the Karnataka Police, Saleem
Khan, secretary of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association
alleged that their cricketers were harassed by the police.
"I don`t think they have any links. They have been
playing for the last 4-5 seasons. They have been going to all
states of the country. We are in touch with the team but the
harassment is hundred percent. The police are harassing them
to leave the stadium," Khan said.
Another member of the JKCA, Manzoor Wazir, was so peeved
with the incident that he even went to the extent of saying
that such issues had the potential to derail the peace process
in the state.
"It`s sad and unfortunate. It`s a big shock to us. I have
seen these boys grow as cricketers. We have absolute faith in
their integrity and disciplined behaviour.
"I just see it as nothing than harassment. We are
talking about normalising the situation but these sort of
incidents can create repercussions," Wazir said.
