Case lodged against Zaheer

Chennai: Chennai Police have lodged a complaint with the Indian team management against pace spearhead Zaheer Khan for breaching security guidelines and getting into an argument with guards at the team hotel.

A senior police official said that Police Commissioner K. Radhakrishnan had written to the BCCI Secretary N. Srinivasan about the “misbehaviour" of the player with Deputy Commissioner of Police M. Pandian, who was designated as the 'Camp Commandant" and deputed exclusively for the security of Indian and England players at the hotel.

On Tuesday, Thiru Kumaran, Zaheer's friend, had come to see Zaheer when he was stopped by security personnel at the lobby.

The paceman came down from his room and got into an argument with the security personnel who prevented his friend from entering the hotel since his name was not in the list of approved guests.

Zaheer's friend, a Tamil Nadu cricketer, was eventually allowed to enter the hotel but only after being thoroughly frisked which angered the bowler even more.

Taking a serious view of the incident, The Tamil Nadu Police have complained to the Indian team management and the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association, the organisers of the first cricket Test between India and England.
