A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: Ijaz Ahmed found guilty of forging cheques

Ahmed spent six weeks in prision in 2009

Former Pakistan batsman Ijaz Ahmed has been found guilty and charged by a local court in a forgery case.

The case has dragged on since Ahmed was arrested in 2009 after a property dealer complained that he had forged cheques.

Ahmed was charged in 2009 and spent six weeks in prison before being released on bail.

As of right now, the court has not issued an arrest warrant for Ahmed, and adjourned the hearing until November 10 since they want the prosecution witnesses to be present for the trial.

Judicial Magistrate Imtiaz Ahmed noted that Ahmed was currently on bail, but is still set to appear in court after issuing cheques totalling upwards of Rs 10 million (about $104,000).

In 2009, police officers at the Gulberg police station in Lahore stated that they had received complaints from two property dealers after cheques given to them by Ahmed had bounced.

During that period when he was arrested and spent time in prison, Ahmed was actually the fielding coach of the Pakistan national team.

Ahmed represented Pakistan in 60 Test matches and 250 ODIs, while also being one of the members of the national team that won the 1992 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup.

Ahmed used to be on the selection committee and is currently the fielding coach at the National Cricket Academy.
