Yasir Shah Name Removed From FIR After Being Cleared In Alleged Rape Case

Pakistan Test cricketer Yasir Shah’s name has been removed from the First Information Report (FIR) regarding the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Shah was relieved after being cleared in the case as it was affecting his cricketing activities.

“Thanks to Allah Almighty, everything is clear now,” Yasir Shah told Cricket Pakistan.

“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.

The leg-spinner is also looking forward to playing the home Test series against Australia, later this year.

“I am now fully fit and looking forward to Australia tour of Pakistan. 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 said.

Shah, who was named with his friend in the case last month, was cleared after the victim stated that he had nothing to do with the incident.

The case had been booked under Section 376 of the Pakistan Penal Code (Punishment for rape), Section 292B and 292C of the PPC that deals with the circulation of pornographic content.

An FIR was registered on the complaint of the victim’s aunt at Shalimar Police Station in Islamabad on December 19, 2021.
