The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday banned five women cricketers for falsely accusing their male officials of sexual harassment after an investigation ruled they lied about the allegations. According to Daily Times In June this year, five women cricketers from the central
Multan region accused
their club chairman and a team selector of demanding sexual favours in return
for their selection in the regional and national teams. The charges were
initially made in a television show but Sultan Alam, chairman of Multan Cricket
Club, and his selector Mohammad Javed denied the allegations.
Seema Javed, a prominent club cricketer, alleged that Alam, 70, once came to her and asked her to convince another girl to give him favours. The PCB set up an inquiry to look into the allegations, which ruled that the five players should be banned for six months and censured
Multan cricket officials. “The inquiry
committee set up to investigate the allegations of sexual harassment by five
women cricketers against the management of Multan Cricket Club has recommended
that all five should be banned from playing any form of cricket for six months
with effect from October 23, 2013,” said a PCB spokesman. According to the
spokesman: “when questioned by the committee three of the five women, including
Seema, categorically denied having been sexually harassed or having seen such
harassment taking place”, while the other two women declined to present their
case at the inquiry. All three who were questioned were serving one penalty or
ban for various offences and that was the focus of their complaint.”

The Multan District Cricket Association, which overseas cricket in the region, has also been censured and asked to keep a close watch on Multan Cricket Club and ensure that all clubs registered with them follow the regulations and disciplinary procedures of PCB. Ayesha Ashaar, the convenor of the probe committee and manager of
women’s cricket, said that even after they have served the ban, “all five girls
will be kept under probation for a period of one year after which the
evaluation of their conduct will be made”. Pakistan women cricketers have done
well on the international level during previous few years but young girls still
suffer hardships to be allowed to play in the deeply conservative Muslim
nation. The national women cricket is governed by the PCB, which looks after
all affairs relating to the game and players in the country.

A First Information Report (FIR) was registered on July 4 against five persons including Khan, two former inspector generals of police (IGPs) Iftikhar Ahmed and Mian Amin, two former DIG’s, Abdul Hanan and Nafees Ahmed and Baksh.
The Shalimar police official informed court that case was registered against latter on the order of Supreme Court (SC), it is a suo motu case of June 21, and the SC had ordered managing director of the foundation to initiate action as the NPF committee had established irregularities and corruption in purchase of land. The Police official further apprised that the accused Baksh was involved in Rs 6 billion corruption in NPF land, during his service period. The official told the court that Khan`s company, Land Linkers, was chosen to procure land for the housing scheme in Islamabad`s Sector E-11 for police personnel.
The NPF officials and high-ups extended undue favours to PML legislator in the process of procuring land and instead of allotting plots among other police personnel they arbitrarily and illegally got 10 to 15 plots allotted in their own names. Police informed that the former managing director and other officials of the NPF were involved in irregularities in the procurement of land.
Vague agreements were made for the procurement of land without any final cut-off date for the supply of land and settlement of accounts by the NPF with Land Linkers.
The police official also said that that one of the abovementioned alleged persons has transferred the 608 kanal land to Capital Development Authority (CDA) but they transferred 563 kanal to CDA.
The land procured through Land Linkers was neither finally quantified by the previous NPF administration till last year nor was any effort made to resolve the issue of shortage of land/rendition of accounts with the company.
The defense counsel Raja Inam of the accused argued that his client was innocent and requested the court for removal of the name of Baksh from FIR. (Daily Times)
