Underworld don Dawood Ibrahim has reportedly made a phone call to Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi and told him to stop running his mouth or face dire consequences. This comes in after Afridi, 36, recently slammed Javed Miandad and elongated a public spat.
Miandad, 59, had accused Afridi of fixing matches, which infuriated the swashbuckling batsman. Afridi has stated that he would be forced to take a legal action against the 1992 World Cup winner for his comments.
Shahid Khan Afirid sent a legal notice through his lawyer Muhamamd Naeem Khan to Javed Miandad Friday for levelling serious allegations against Afridi.
In the notice addressed to Miandad, Advocate Naeem asked Miandad to prove allegations made against his client regarding match fixing in Miandad’s talk on different TV channels.
The notice further said burden of proof lies upon Miandad’s shoulders.
Miandad is asked to reply as soon as possible after receiving the notice otherwise legal proceedings will be initiated against him.
Earlier the tussle began when Miandad alleged that Afridi wanted to play a farewell match for money. The flamboyant former T20 skipper hit back at Miandad and said: “Money has always been an issue for Miandad.” Soon after Miandad told a TV channel on Tuesday that he would “forgive” Shahid Afridi, the all-rounder took to Twitter, questioning whether the cricket great had “withdrawn his allegations”.
It is being claimed that Dawood Ibrahim, one of the most wanted terrorists in the world, made a personal call to Afridi on October 12 around 8-9 pm.
