Indian team gets terror threat on PCB email

Published

New Delhi: Team India is currently in the West Indies and playing the three-day practice match against the WICB XI. In the meantime, in a dramatic turn of events, it has been reported that the PCB has received an email of a possible attack on Team India in the Caribbean islands.

An anonymous email popped up in the inbox of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) official account on Friday, August 16, stating that the Indian cricket team – which is currently in the middle of the tour of West Indies – is under threat of an imminent attack. The PCB immediately forwarded the said email, which has no mention of any terror-based group or known identities, to the International Cricket Council (ICC). In due process, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) also received a copy of the said email within the next 24 hours.

This comes as a shocking piece of news for everyone as the tensions between India and Pakistan continue to soar over the Kashmir issue. However, according to the reports in Geo TV, the PCB has acted responsibly over the incident and has reported the issue to the International Cricket Council (ICC). The BCCI on Sunday confirmed the email of TOI according to which it contained a threat “to Kill Indian Cricketers”.

While there was no response from the ICC, TOI spoke with a senior official in the Pakistan Cricket Board who said “PCB does not comment on safety and security issues”. However those who have read the letter told TOI that “on the face of it, the email sounds ‘bogus’. It mentions some random name. And it was proved that it was a hoax and the team is under no threat.”
