The Pakistan Cricket Board has sent to the International Cricket Council an official report on last year’s terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore.
A spokesman for the ICC however, declined to comment on the report, or disclose any of its findings, saying only that “it is a confidential document.” PCB chief Ijaz Butt earlier confirmed he had sent the report to the ICC only after he had received approval from the Punjab Government to do so.
The Pakistani Cricket Board was severely criticised by former players and officials for delaying sending the report to the ICC, which had requested a copy of the document. The 600-page report was compiled by Lahore High Court judge Shabbar Raza Rizvi, who was commissioned by the Punjab Government to conduct an inquiry into the March 3rd 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team.
Eight people were killed in the attack by gunmen near the entrance to Lahore’s Gaddafi cricket stadium, as the Sri Lankan squad arrived for play on the third day of their second Test against Pakistan.
