Court summons for cricketer Umar Akmal

12A day after he struck an unbeaten match-winning century against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup in Bangladesh, Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal Friday received a court summon for March 11 to face charges of jumping a traffic light and fighting with a traffic police personnel.

Pakistan daily The News quoting an official said a local sessions court had issued an order for Akmal to appear before it March 11.

The 23-year-old batsman was arrested Feb 1 in Lahore before being released on bail on charges of jumping a red light and then scuffling with a traffic warden.

Akmal has denied the charges and has accused the police of being biased.

Meanwhile, Umar’s elder brother Kamran was also fined Thursday for a traffic violation.

Kamran was fined for talking on his mobile phone while driving.

“It was my mistake so I surrendered before the warden who fined me,” Kamran said.
