LAHORE (Agencies) - Discarded Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal's father-in-law on Monday filed a defamation suit against Zulqarnain Haider for Rs 15 crore in the Lahore High Court, the TOI reported on Monday/ Haider has been asked to appear in court on December 14 to explain his position. Haider, who had fled the Pakistan team hotel in Dubai in November last year and flown to London claiming he was under threat from a bookmaker, returned to Pakistan in April this year after security and safety assurances from interior minister Rehman Malik. After being fined half a million rupees, the Pakistan Cricket Board allowed Haider to play in domestic cricket. But during the course of his exile in London and on his return, Haider, a wicketkeeper-batsman who played last year in England and against South Africa in the one-day series in UAE, claimed in media statements that Kamran and his brother Umar Akmal caused him immense mental pressure. He also claimed that Kamran had a powerful lobby in the team and did not allow players from outside his group to settle down in the team. Insinuations were also made by Haider about the involvement of Pakistani players in corruption and fixing but until now he has failed to provide any evidence to support his claims. "The suit asks Haider to either substantiate his claims or publicly apologise for his actions or pay Rs 150m in damages," a source close to Kamran said.
