Pakistani cricket captain Babar Azam found himself in dire straits on Thursday after an additional sessional court in Lahore ordered police to register an FIR and press charges against him over a sexual exploitation complaint.
The complainant, Hamiza Mukhtar from Lahore alleged that the cricketer sexually exploited her, forced her to have an abortion and made false promises of marriage. The petitioner has attached her medical documents as evidence.
The judge of the additional sessions, Noman Muhammad Naeem, after hearing the arguments of the lawyers for both sides, ordered the SHO of the Naseerabad police station to immediately register the FIR against Babar.
The judge noted that the allegations were disturbing and serious to warrant further investigation.
Hamiza later confirmed that the FIR was dropped off at the Naseerabad police station.
