ISLAMBAD - Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) inquiry committee, headed by Ashfaq Ahmed General Manager Administration/HR, handed over three-year ban to former president of Abbottabad Region Cricket Association Aamir Nawab after founding him guilty of embezzlement of Rs 4,98,600 after 8-month inquiry conducted against Aamir Nawab at Pindi Cricket Stadium.

Highly placed sources in the PCB have confirmed that sentence was handed over to Aamir as he was found guilty of misuse of funds being provided to him in 2012 for conducting of various tournaments in Abboattabd Region. Aamir was asked to submit bank accounts statements as proof whether he had handed over cash for holding events or not. All the affiliated associations of Abbottabad Region including Abbottabad, Haripur, Mardan, Swabi, Manshera and Low Dir were called during the inquiry.

The sources said Aamir used delaying tactics and kept on changing his statements but after thorough investigation, the actual facts surfaced and bank statements proved that embezzlement was conducted by Aamir. Sources said Aamir can't contest any elections of any association/region even after 3-year ban completion until and unless he clears all outstanding amount. According to sources, Aamir was given a detailed Performa by the PCB inquiry committee but he failed to justify the allegations leveled against him and after investigation, which kept on lingering for 8 months due to non-cooperative attitude of Aamir, the detailed judgment was handed over to Aamir and he would receive a letter from PCB in this regard very soon as the letter was delivered on 7th April, Tuesday.
