New Delhi: Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif on Wednesday slammed a reputed media house for confusing him for a wanted sharpshooter with the same name.
Wanted shooter Mohammad Kaif was sent to 14 days judicial custody after he surrendered before a Siwan court on Wednesday.
Soon after the news broke, BBC Hindi carried a headline which read – 'Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif surrenders.'
The Indian cricketer was quick to react to it, as he severely hit out at them for sensationalising the headline without checking facts.
Here's what he tweeted:
कहाँ किया ,कब किया,भारत के लिए कितने मैच खेला।
हैडलाइन के लिए कुछ भी बकैती,हद्द कर दी आपने।
ऐसे कोई पड़ता नहीं क्या? pic.twitter.com/wJOXMeVBKn

Kaif alias Bunty, is an alleged sharpshooter and accused in the murder case of Siwan journalist Rajdeo Ranjan.
He was back in news after being seen in a photograph with former RJD MP Mohammad Shahabuddin following the latter’s release from Bhagalpur jail on September 10.
