Cheating & Trespassing Case Filed against Former Cricketer Manoj Prabhakar

Cheating and Trespassing case has been filed against former Indian pacer Manoj Prabhakar and family on Thursday.

Prabhakar, who lives in the first floor of an apartment in South Delhi, has been alleged of illegally breaking into a house in the second floor of the same building.

Hindustan Times reported that a woman, who currently resides in London, claimed herself as the owner of the house in which she alleged Prabhakar of illegally sheltering a friend.

“The woman claimed that when she tried to raised the issue, she was threatened with dire consequences. She claimed that her flat was encroached upon by Prabhakar and others on the basis of forged documents,” an investigating officer was quoted as saying.

During initial investigation, the police found that Manoj Goyal, a property dealer, who is also one of the accused in the case has prepared forged papers and helped Prabhakar to occupy the flat.

“After going through initial investigation, a case has been registered at Malviya Nagar police station. We will call Prabhakar for questioning,” said the police officer.

Prabhakar, however, has rejected the allegations made against him by the woman.

He said that he has been living in the flat on the first floor for the past 23 years and has never seen the woman. “We do not know anything about the woman. I don’t know who lives on the second floor,” Prabhakar said.

Manoj Prabhakar has played for India from 1984 to 1996. He played 39 Test matches during that time, picking up 94. He also has 157 One Day International wickets to his name, having played 130 matches.

Prabhakar retired from international cricket during the 1995-69 World Cup. After that, he had a rather unsuccessful stint in politics before making a return to cricket as a coach. He served as the bowling coach of his home state Delhi and head coach of Rajasthan. He was also Afghanistan’s bowling coach ahead of the 2016 World T20.
