first three matches and was also scheduled to umpire in the fourth and fifth ODIs in Chennai and Mumbai on October 22 and 25 respectively Related News On Monday night Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar was at the Mumbai airport waiting to board a flight to Dubai and not Chennai as would have been the case for the fourth ODI between India and South Africa scheduled to be held in the southern capital on October 22 Dar’s change of schedule had come about after the ICC withdrew him from the rest of the series in a strong response to the violent attack that the Shiv Sena had launched at the BCCI office to disrupt scheduled talks for resuming ties between India and Pakistan The unprecedented withdrawal of an official owing to political pressure came after ICC president Zaheer Abbas cast a shadow over Pakistan’s participation in next year’s World T20 to be held in India “Under the present circumstances it will be unreasonable to expect from Aleem that he will be able to perform his duties to the best of his abilities As such he has been withdrawn and his replacement will be announced in due course” the ICC spokesman stated in a press release Share This Article Related Article Following their slogan-shouting and flag-waving protests which ensured that BCCI president Shashank Manohar and PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan didn’t meet at all there were reports that the Sena had warned Dar against officiating during the fifth ODI at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Sunday Abbas meanwhile hinted that the Pakistani players could cite security concerns as a reason to stay away from the World T20 “Pakistani and Indian cricket authorities must work it out otherwise I fear the Pakistan players could also refuse to tour India for the upcoming World T20 Cup citing security concerns” the former Pakistan captain said “I don’t know what the environment will be when the World T20 is held in India but if this situation persists obviously there will be extra pressure on our players” he added Abbas is also learnt to have told the Pakistani media that the arch-rivals could play at a neutral venue in December while insisting that politics and sports should be kept apart IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla though lauded the “good relationship” that the BCCI and PCB have shared over the years but didn’t agree that the two neighbouring countries should face each other in a neutral country “India and Pakistan are very important We should play on Neutral venue is not a good option We should keep talking all the time” he said The last time India and Pakistan met in a bilateral series was in late 2012 when they faced each other in two T20s and three ODIs Ever since their meetings have been confined to ICC events But earlier this year Shukla had warned PCB of dire consequences after Khan said that Pakistan might boycott India in ICC tournaments if the bilateral series doesn’t go ahead in December “PCB is bound by the rules of the ICC if it backs out it will have to bear the fine” Shukla had said This time Shukla said that Khan’s visit to Mumbai was based on his “willingness” to meet the new BCCI president “BCCI is a responsible body they are committed to national interest We will not take any decision without consulting the government PCB and BCCI have a good relationship Pakistan has supported us at the ICC for long Since the new president was taking over the PCB had shown a willingness to meet and he agreed The PCB officials have a valid visa to travel” he said Shukla then appealed to the Shiv Sena to avoid such protests indicating how even a small incident like this could have major repercussions on Indian cricket and end up impacting the World T20 “I appeal to (Sena chief) Uddhav Thackeray they should take a considerate view” he said Meanwhile having been asked to stay at his hotel following the Sena attack Khan spent most of Monday in the company of his wife and PCB CEO Najam Sethi The hotel itself was turned into a fortress with securitymen manning all entries and exits There were unsubstantiated rumours that the meeting was only deferred and might take place at an undisclosed location later in the evening But it wasn’t to be Interestingly former Pakistan fast bowling legend Wasim Akram checked into the hotel around 2 pm causing a mini-flutter in the lobby among those present including the plain-clothed policemen and other security personnel Soon after Khan his wife and Sethi were whisked away amidst tight security to the airport to board a flight to Delhi It’s learnt that while Khan will stay in Delhi Sethi will fly back to Pakistan Meanwhile BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur put up a brave front despite the ruckus that ensued following the Sena’s attack When asked about whether the protest would lead to Dar being withdrawn and hamper the World T20 he said “There was the possibility of a protest in Rajkot as well where more than 50000 people were supposed to come What is threat and what is perception — I will not go there” As it turned out an ICC press release arrived a few hours later revealing a significant change in Dar’s travel plans For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by

attempts to locate and rescue a leopard from a workshop inside the Indian Institute of Technology of Bombay (IIT-B) forest officials went with their tranquiliser guns blazing inside the workshop on Saturday morning only to find no leopard inside The combining operation ended around 3 am confirming the forest department’s theory that the leopard that was locked in on Wednesday morning must have escaped before the rescue team reached the spot hours later “The workshop belonging to the metallurgy department was handed over to the institute by 7 am” said K P Singh chief conservator of forests (CCF) Thane forest division who visited the spot Friday night “It was already three days and several attempts to locate the leopard had yielded no results so we sent in a team with all the gear and searched every bit of the workshop Although we suspected that the leopard would no more be there we needed to be sure before we handed the lab over to the IIT” Singh said Forest officials however confirmed that a leopard used the workshop situated a kilometre away from the main gate as a hiding spot “The cabin top inside the workshop had pug marks and there was scat (animal excreta) all around the workshop We believe that after being locked up inside the workshop by IIT-B employees on Wednesday morning the leopard may have been scared and used the cabin top to escape through the exhaust fan vent just below the roof” said Kishore Thakre deputy conservator of forest (territorial) Thane division But this leopard rescue mission was like no other for the forest department For the first time robots with camera and night-vision equipment were used to search for the animal On Wednesday forest officials blocked all potential exits of the workshop and set up a trap cage inside the workshop When this failed to lure the leopard a team of students brought in a remote-controlled car fitted with camera to locate the leopard When this too failed to spot the leopard two forest officials surveyed the lab while seated inside a caged trolley To get an aerial view students also attached a camera and torch on a bamboo and inserted it through some of the spaces Several failed attempts and 34 tired forest officials later the combining operation was decided upon Thakre said using crackers to bring the leopard out of the workshop was not an option as the workshop contain hydrogen tanks “We tried several methods for two days and tranquilising is always a last option for us” Thakre said “We may ask IIT-B to provide us with the robot for future use during similar rescue operations” he added On its part IIT-B has deployed a security guard at the workshop and has instructed the campus security to intensify their night watch “We may repair the workshop as it was not used regularly and has a lot of old equipment Right now security will be intensified to avoid such situations in future” said Rashmi Udaykumar IIT-B’s public relations officer For all the latest Mumbai News download
