Pakistani batsman Umar Akmal has reportedly been absolved of all allegations in a traffic violation case after the concerned police man forgave him, saying that the player is a national hero.
Umar Akmal was charged in February for violating traffic rules and scuffling with police officer Mohammad Zeeshan, although he was released on bail after being arrested for hours. As per media, however, a court last month issued a warrant against him, ordering him to appear on March 11, although Umar Akmal had refused the allegations and accused the police of one-sided action.
But a court official said that the magistrate removed him of all allegations after Zeeshan forgave Umar Akmal, and quoted the police man saying that he has forgiven the cricketer as he is a national hero. Umar Akmal, who saved his team with a fighting 100 against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup last month, left for Bangladesh on Friday along with the rest of the Pakistan team for the World T20 contest, the report added.
