Pak politician calls for exemplary punishment for players if found guilty of spot-fixing

Pakistani parliamentarian Gul Muhammad Lot has said that if found guilty, the cricketers allegedly involved in the Lords Test spot-fixing scandal should be given exemplary punishment for showing dishonesty with the nation.


Islamabad, Aug 31: Pakistani parliamentarian Gul Muhammad Lot has said that if found guilty, the cricketers allegedly involved in the Lord's Test 'spot-fixing' scandal should be given exemplary punishment for showing dishonesty with the nation.

Lot, a member of Pakistan Standing Committee of Senate for Information and Broadcasting, said that the scandal has ruined the image of Pakistan, and hurt the feelings of millions of supporters.

He further said that the players have become a source of disgrace for the nation, and said that if the charges against them are proved they should be arrested.

"All those who are involved in this shameful incident they were national heroes and now they have become accused. Nation would never forgive them of their regrettable and reprehensible act," The Nation quoted Lot, as saying.

Pakistan fast bowlers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir have been accused by a British tabloid of being paid to deliberately bowl 'no-balls' during Test match against England.

Scotland Yard police is investigating claims that reporters from News of The World had paid 150,000 pounds to London-based Mazhar Majeed in return for exact details.

Skipper Salman Butt, Amir, Asif and wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal have all given statements to the police in this regard.
