‘I wasn’t caught with any drugs’

Karachi: Back home after 19 days of detention in Dubai, Pakistan pace spearhead Mohammad Asif stuck to his guns, insisting that he was not caught with any contraband drugs by the authorities there.

The pacer claimed he was innocent which is why he was eventually released.

“I never took any drugs or banned substances. I have never used drugs in my life and I challenge anyone to prove I do take drugs. If I had taken any drugs I would have tested positive during laboratory tests in Dubai and also when I gave a random test during the Indian Premier League,” he said in Lahore after returning from Dubai via Karachi.

He also rubbished reports that drug were recovered from his possession in Dubai.

“It was no drug just a substance given to me by a local Hakeem.” — PTI
