KARACHI – At least four Sindh police officials were arrested on Tuesday and two others were suspended after national cricketer Sohaib Maqsood accused them of extortion and bribery. 

A senior official confirmed the arrest of policemen of the Sakrand police station. The action was taken after the national cricketer shared his ordeal on social media platform X, calling the Sindh police “corrupt”.

“We are so lucky that we live In Punjab not in Sindh first time in my life I am travelling from Karachi to Multan by Road and sindh police is so corrupt that they stop you after 50 km and ask for money or they threat you to go to the police station for no reason if you give them money then they will stop you again after 50 km and ask for money again corruption at it’s peak in sindh police,” he wrote.

“We told them that we are international cricketers travelling to multan after our match in Karachi they still took 8000 thousand rupees and then let us go…,” he added.
