Asif stopped at Delhi airport

New Delhi: Contreversial Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Asif was detained at the Indira Gandhi International Airport on Saturday evening, reportedly for travelling without complete travel documents.

The cricketer had arrived in Delhi to talk to GMR and the Delhi Daredevils management for the settlement of outstanding IPL dues. According to sources, Asif had landed at the Delhi airport via Mumbai, was stopped by immigration officials for not carrying complete travel documents and after interrogation they wanted to deport him.

“Asif has a five-year visa which states that he can travel to India as an international cricketer to play in the Indian Premier League. But since he has gone on a private visit and not to play cricket, he was supposed to inform the Indian High Commission in Islamabad for clearance which he did not do," sources said.

Asif has reportedly sought help from the Pakistani High Commission in Delhi to sort out the problem.
