Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq robbed at gun point

KARACHI: Senior Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq was robbed at gun point of his valuables in his home in Lahore.

Razzaq said that masked men had broken into his home early this morning and robbed him of his passport, gold and cash.

“The matter has been reported to the police but it was a traumatic experience for me and my family members as the robbers tied us up while they robbed the valuables,” he said.

Razzaq, 33, was recalled to the national side for the Twenty20 series against South Africa in the UAE after one year on the sidelines but had to return home from the tour to South Africa because of a hamstring injury.

He said the robbers had entered his home through the washroom window and took away the locker from a room, which had his passport, around 38 ounces of gold and 8,000 dollars and 2,500 pounds. Lahore police said they suspected the thieves had prior information.
