KARACHI: The prime sus­pect in­volved in a case of fir­ing at for­mer crick­eter Wasim Akram ten­dered an apol­ogy to the cricket su­per­star on Sun­day.

The sus­pect, Ma­jor (retd) Amirul Rehman, wrote a let­ter to the for­mer Pak­istan cricket cap­tain, un­con­di­tion­ally apol­o­giz­ing for the"sad in­ci­dent", adding that he had to face strong op­po­si­tion from his fam­ily due to the road-rage in­ci­dent. "You are our na­tional hero, our pride. How can I think to fight with you?" he wrote in his let­ter.

How­ever, what im­pact this let­ter will leave on the le­gal mat­ter vis-à-vis the fir­ing in­ci­dent is yet to be as­cer­tained. On Au­gust 5, Akram re­mained un­hurt fol­low­ing an at­tack on his car near Na­tional Sta­dium in Karachi. Akram's car met with an ac­ci­dent on Karsaz Road near Na­tional Sta­dium.

Fol­low­ing a row with the driver of the car, a 2002 Honda Civic, the pri­vate guard sit­ting with the driver fired at Akram's car. Be­fore po­lice could ar­rive at the scene, the driver and his guards man­aged to flee. How­ever, there were no ca­su­al­ties re­ported dur­ing the in­ci­dent. Af­ter the in­ci­dent, Akram called the po­lice helpline 15 and reg­is­tered a com­plaint.
