Arrest Warrant Issued Against Wasim Akram

According to the Dawn, a sessions court in Karachi on Tuesday issued a bailable arrest warrant against Pakistan’s former captain Wasim Akram after he missed 31 hearings of a case he filed against Major (retd) Aminur Rehman and associates last August after he was involved in a road accident with the retired army man.

The major had drawn out a revolver and fired an open shot after his vehicle collided with Akram’s Mercedes while the former cricketer was returning home from the National Stadium.

Earlier reports suggested that the matter was settled between the two parties on the intervention of influential people in a few days. The sessions court has set the next date of hearing for January 17 and directed police to ensure Wasim makes an appearance. Wasim is currently in Australia for the Pakistan and Australia series.
