Former Pakistan player charged

Ijaz Ahmed

LAHORE – Former top Pakistan batsman Ijaz Ahmed has been charged by a local court in Lahore in a forgery case.

The case has dogged Ijaz since 2009, when he was arrested after a police complaint by a property dealer, for forging a cheque, and spent six weeks in jail before being released on bail.

The court hasn’t issued an arrest warrant and adjourned the hearing until November 10, ordering the prosecution witnesses to appear in court.

Judicial Magistrate Imtiaz Ahmed said that Ijaz was on bail and was facing a trial with respect to issuing false cheques worth Rs 10 million (about $104,000).

In 2009, police officials at the Gulberg police station in Lahore said two property dealers had filed a complaint against Ijaz for issuing them cheques that had bounced. At the time he was the arrested, he was Pakistan’s national fielding coach.

Ijaz, 44, played 60 Tests and 250 ODIs and was a member of the Pakistan team that won the 1992 World Cup. He was earlier on the selection committee and is currently the fielding coach at the National Cricket Academy.
