The 50-year-old Nadeem has played 80 first-class matches and was once considered a better bowler than Waqar. The victim woman cricketer, in her complaint to the police, has claimed that she had gone to Multan for PCB women’s trials a few years back when Nadeem was one of the many coaches present there.
The victim said in the video message released, ‘He promised to pick me in the women’s team and get a job in the board and came close to me. He kept on sexually abusing me and some of his friends were also involved in this. He also made my video and later blackmailed me.
Earlier in 2014, five young women cricketers accused the officials of a private cricket club in Multan of sexual harassment. Last year, Pakistan’s Test leg-spinner Yasir Shah was also accused of helping his friend sexually assault a young woman and later threatening her. Though the complainant later withdrew the charges against Yasir, the case against his friend is still pending in the court.
