Son of former Pakistani cricketer commits suicide.

KARACHI -- Mohammad Zaryab, a son of former Pakistani cricketer Amir Hanif, has committed suicide by hanging himself .

Amir Hanfi confirmed the report, saying his son was forced to commit suicide by coaches and people overseeing the affairs of under-19 cricket in the country.

"My son has departed, but please save sons of other people," said he.

He had recently represented Karachi in an Under-19 cricket tournament in Lahore and was sent back after receiving injury with an assurance from coaches that he would be selected again.

But he was not selected again on the grounds that he was an overage player. Dejected by the decision, Zaryab committed suicide. His body was shifted to the Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Complex.
