Received death threats when Australia came to Pakistan: Ex-PCB Chair Ramiz Raja
Former Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ramiz Raja has made some startling revelations regarding a death threat he received when Australia traveled to Pakistan, last year.
While speaking to Samaa TV, Raja revealed that he had to use a bullet proof car (worth 1.65 crore Pakistani Rupees) as a protection after he received death threat.
“I received a death threat. You can’t get a bullet-proof at until you face a death threat. That’s why I had that car. It’s with PCB now, I didn’t buy that car,” Ex-PCB president said.
The World Cup winning player further claimed that he received death threats when Australia came to Pakistan in March 2022.
“DIG sahab came to my home, there was a whole report that was made. That’s why I bought it,” Raja added.
Notably, Raja was recently sacked from his position following Pakistan’s humiliating 0-3 whitewash against England in the home Test series.
