Dehradun, July 14 (Ajit Weekly News) Dehradun police have questioned the Cricket Association of Uttarakhand (CAU) officials after an FIR was lodged by the father of a former U19 cricketer on charges of extortion and death threats.
Virendra Sethi, the father of the former U-19 player, filed a complaint at the Vasant Vihar Police station in Dehradun, alleging that his son was threatened for his life by the team officials, manager Navneet Mishra and video analyst Piyush Raghuvanshi.
