Karachi: June 6, 2011

 

Former Pakistan batsman Mansoor Akhtar has been forced to step down from his senior position in a leading bank after being charged in a corruption case.

 

According to a report, Mansoor had to step down as head of the United Bank sports complex after being charged with committing fraud and corruption.

 

Mansoor, regarded as one of the most stylish batsmen produced by Pakistan, appeared in 19 Tests and 41 one-day matches in a career spanning from 1980 to 1990.

 

The report in Jang newspaper said Mansoor was accused of depositing cheques directly into his own account which were given by departments, banks and organisations as rental for the complex ground.

 

He is also accused of keeping salaries of “ghost” employees at the complex.

 

“He had a front man, an umpire named Ejaz Zaidi who worked for and collected the cheques and money and organised tournaments for him,” the report said.

 

The report said that after receiving a complaint, the UBL which used to have its own first class team and produced many leading players like Rashid Latif, Waqar Younis, Mushtaq Ahmed, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Sikander Bakht, Basit Ali, Azhar Mahmood, conducted a departmental inquiry against Mansoor.

 

“During the course of the inquiry, the evidence against Mansoor appeared to be strong that he had committed fraud and corruption and cheated the bank out of millions of rupees,” the newspaper said.
