LAHORE: Pakistan middle-order batsman Umar Akmal today,sent a defamation notice to model Rachal Khan for ‘damaging his reputation’ by hurling an allegation of sexual harassment against him.

The notice demanded Rachel Khan issued public apology within 15 days otherwise he would file a defamation lawsuit against her.

It is pertinent to mention here that Rachel Khan had claimed that she slapped Umar Akmal when he tried to harass her during an event in Oslo, Norway.

Her statement came after Pakistan Cricket Borad (PCB) served Akmal with a show-cause notice for violating the board’s code of conduct by attending a dance party in Hyderabad.

Yesterday, the middle-order batsman filed a reply with the PCB, denying the accusations against him.
