Dubai: Confusion reigns supreme in the absence of any official clarification on Mohammad Asif’s detention and local media on Saturday quoted the Chief Prosecutor as saying that charges have not yet been framed against the detained Pakistan pacer.

Chief Prosecutor Mohammad Ali Rustom told Gulf News that forensic examinations have confirmed that the substance recovered from the Pakistani pacer at the Dubai airport was opium.

According to him, charges are yet to be framed against the cricketer, who remains at the Dubai Airport Detention Centre since he arrived on Sunday. — PTI
