According to the supplementary report of Islamabad's Shalimar police station, the victim stated that Yasir Shah had nothing to do with the matter
Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah has been cleared from the sexual assault case after he was allegedly booked last month.
On December 20, a First Information Report (FIR) case was registered against Yasir Shah and, according to the complainant, his friend, Farhan, under sections 292-B and 292-C (child pornography) as well as 376 (punishment for rape) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
But now, Yasir's name has been removed from the case. According to the supplementary report of Islamabad's Shalimar police station, the victim stated that Yasir Shah had nothing to do with the matter and his name was taken due to misrepresentation.
The leg-spinner talked exclusively to Express News and opined that this case caused a lot of pain as his name was also brought into disrepute.
"Thanks to Allah, everything is clear now," Yasir Shah told to this correspondent.
"Now I can give all my focus and attention to the game. Due to this case, there was a lot of disturbance which also affected cricket activities," he added.
Yasir is now eyeing return to the national team for the Australia Tests.
'I am now fully fit and looking forward to Australia tour of Pakistan. After getting fit, I played a four-day match and now I will try to give the best performance when I get a chance in the series against Australia in March," he added.
Remember, Yasir Shah's friend Farhan took the mobile number of a 14-year-old girl and then proceeded to become her friend.
The details claim that the sexual assault occurred on August 14, when the underage girl was returning from tuition and Farhan took her to the F-11 area and sexually assaulted her at gunpoint. In addition to that, Farhan also filmed her.
After offering resistance, Farhan not only threatened to make the video viral but also threatened to kill her if she reveals the unfortunate incident to anyone.
The complainant had stated that Yasir Shah also threatened her niece saying that he was an international cricketer and would implicate her in a case if she complained.
It must be noted that Yasir was also out of the national Test side due to his existing thumb fracture problem.
