Unidentified armed men have ransacked five national snooker players of their essentials while they were heading to Saddar Hotel in Karachi for taking part in the National Snooker Championship on Sunday.
The players were bereft of their mobile phones, cash and other essential items. The players who have been looted include Babar Massih, Hamza Akbar, Abu Sayem, Abdul Raheem, Abdul Samad.
Pakistan’s snooker players are known worldwide for their consistent participation and spectacular performances in international events. However, in spite of the fact that the sport is played all over Pakistan, and played well, snooker players remain unknown to their own countrymen since their performance and victories are not given the due attention they deserve.
This is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.
