Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)-BCB president Nazmul Hassan has said fast bowler Shahadat Hossain is likely to be kept out of cricket until a decision is reached on the Women and Children Repression Prevention Act case against him.
Hassan said Shahadat had come looking for him but he did not meet the fast bowler, reports ESPNcricinfo.
ESPNcricinfo also learned from a BCB source that Shahadat had been temporarily suspended by the board.
Hassan did not specify when or where Shahadat tried to meet him.
Dhaka police have been looking for the fast bowler for the last five days but have not been able to find him.
Shahadat and his wife are wanted on charges of allegedly assaulting their housemaid.
“Unless the investigation ends or there is a decision on the matter, BCB doesn’t want to keep any attachment with him,” Hassan said.
“We are quiet, and we will remain quiet. He is more than likely to stay outside cricket.
“There is no reason to give Shahadat Hossain any leeway, it is quite clear. I don’t know whether you know this, but he came to see me. I didn’t meet him. What would I have told him? I don’t have anything to do. It is totally up to the law of the land.”
