Fiber cables for closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, as well as generator batteries valued at ten lakh, were stolen. Batteries of the generators installed for lighting in the Gaddafi Stadium were also stolen. The robbers who could not be apprehended can be seen escaping on the CCTV footage.
It is important to remember that the standoff over PSL security costs between the Punjab government and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) continues.
PCB took the decision to stand by its stance and refuse to pay the caretaker government Rs 250 million for the security costs that were disclosed to the authorities.
Former PCB chairman Ramiz Raja stated that the board would go bankrupt if it started to pay security costs.
