Five persons including cricketers get clean chit

Kathmandu, March 26

The Kathmandu District Court has acquitted five people, including cricket all-rounder Adil Ansari and former national cricket player Mahaboob Alam, who were accused of match-fixing.

The bench of Judge Kamal Prasad Pokharel has ordered the acquittal of five people held on the charge of match-fixing, arguing that the petitioner’s claim was not sufficient. According to Chandra Prasad Panthi, information officer of District Court Kathmandu, the court acquitted the five persons after the claims made by the government against them could not be substantiated.

They were arrested for alleged match-fixing in the Nepal T-20 League held in Kathmandu last year but released on bail of Rs 300,000.
