BANGALORE: Pakistan blind cricket team captain Zeeshan Abbasi was made to drink a glass of acid during breakfast in India, Geo News reported on Saturday here.
The captain, who is leading national blind side in Twenty-20 World Cup Cricket Tournament for the blind at Bangalore, was apparently made to drink the hazardous liquid as the acid glass was served during breakfast right in front of partially blind Zeeshan Abbasi.
Chairman Pakistan Blind Cricket Council Sultan Shah alleged that the glass filled with acid was deliberately placed on the table, if not, then why was it placed on the breakfast table?
“Abbasi is not feeling well, his health is worsening,” he told the media.
