Khalid s Latif lawyer Badar Alam has recently claimed that his client received death threat on phone call during June. The threat caller told Latif to not resist spot-fixing case probe launched by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), he added.
The right-hand opening batsman was banned for five years and fined Rs 1 million in the spot-fixing scandal that erupted during the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL). The former Islamabad United player, along with his teammate Sharjeel Khan, was charged with allegations of spot-fixing against him under PCB’s anti-corruption code.
Latif s lawyer claimed while talking to media that the 31-year-old had received death threats via phone call and text messages in the month of June when PCB was probing him in the spot-fixing case. Latif remained silent because he didn’t want his family members to get into trouble, he told further.
