Zaka Ashraf’s removal challenged in IHC

Zaka-Ashraf-chairman-PCBISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Zaka Ashraf’s removal has been challenged in Islamabad High Court here on Tuesday.

The petition was filed by Advocate Abdul Razaq Rajab on behalf of Multan Regional Cricket Association.

It was stated in the petition that PCB governing board was dissolved illegaly, adding that that imposition of emergency in the board is tantamount to imposing the marital law.

The petitioner prayed to the court to nullify the notification issued on Prime Minister’s order.

So far, Zaka Ashraf has not so challenged the decision, but says he will take action after thoroughly reviewing the notification.

It is the second time in less than a year that Ashraf has been unseated as chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which will be run for the time being by an 11-strong committee appointed by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

The 11-man interim committee includes Najam Sethi, ex-PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan and former cricketers Iqbal Qasim and Zaheer Abbas among others.

The PCB chairmanship has been a topic of controversy ever since the board s inception in 1948, with the ruling political party of the day generally giving the post to one of its supporters.
