LAHORE: The Pakistani Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday refused to comment on a scandal surrounding cricketer Imam-ul-Haq calling it a personal issue.
Pakistan opener has been accused of manipulating and cheating on multiple women.
The issue arose on Wednesday when a twitter user posted several screenshots of alleged Whatsapp and Instagram conversations between Imam and several other girls.
The user, who wished to be anonymous, wrote, “So apparently Mr. @ImamUlHaq12 was dating 7 to 8 (that we know of) women and kept using them and manipulating them. He kept telling them the whole time how he’s single.”
She claimed that Imam was dating at least three girls at the same time during Pakistan’s tour of South Africa in January and February this year. “None of the 3 girls knew about each other,” she added.
Several other girls on social media have since followed suit and made similar accusations against the cricketer.
One of the girls, F*, tweeted pictures and videos with the star batsman claimed she met Imam multiple times in South Africa.
Another Twitter user who claimed to know some of the alleged victims said the cricketers demanded indecent pictures from the girls, ensuring them that he was single and would marry them.
F* added in the online statement, “being a victim to this myself. I can say, yes it is cheating. But in what way is cheating on someone okay, that too, with multiple partners.”
