Pakistan cricket has landed in hot water after a woman accused its captain Babar Azam of sexual abuse. A woman whose name is unknown revealed that cricketer Babar exploited her for ten years and gave her false marriage hopes while making some unpleasant claims.
The woman claimed that Babar got her pregnant, threatened her in a press conference video, and journalist Saj Sadiq shared it.
“He promised to marry me, he got me pregnant, he beat me up, he threatened me, and he used me,” the woman was quoted as saying.
“I have known Babar since the time he had nothing to do with cricket. He was from a poor household. I hope all my brothers and sisters here are going to help me get justice so that no daughter gets to go through what I have. Babar and I have grown up in the same colony; we used to stay together,” said the woman.
The woman also stated that she and Babar had known each other from their school days, and in 2010 he proposed to her.
“He was my school friend. In 2010, he proposed to me, and I accepted his proposal. He, in fact, proposed to me after coming to my house. As time progressed, our understanding got better. We had planned to get married and informed our families too, but they refused,” the woman added.
“Then Babar and I decided to have a court marriage. In 2011, Babar and I eloped and had promised me of marriage, kept me at rented places. During that time, I kept asking him to get married, but he said, ‘we are not in a position to. With time, we will get married’,” she said.
The woman further revealed that she used to take care of all their expenses, including the money Babar needed for his cricket. She also said that in 2016 she got pregnant is when she sensed a massive change in the cricketer’s attitude.
