Chennai Super Kings (CSK) star batsman and vice-captain Suresh Raina withdrew his name ahead of the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League. Citing his ‘personal reasons’, Raina flew back to his home in India. Later, shocking news came, claiming Raina’s uncle died in a house attack at midnight in Pathankot’s Tharial Village.
His uncle took the last breath on the same day on which this heinous attack took place. While his father’s sister (bua) was discovered battling for her life in the hospital, Raina’s cousins too suffered severe injuries in the attack. The police informed that they have been on the lookout to identify the attackers.
Reacting to this, the former India batsman took on Twitter to urge the concerned authorities to look into this matter. Raina also tagged the official handles of Punjab Police and Punjab CM Captain Amrinder Singh on the micro-blogging site. He went on to mention that one of his cousins too, succumbed to the injuries.
In a thread of two tweets, the 33-year-old wrote, “What happened to my family is Punjab was beyond horrible. My uncle was slaughtered to death, my bua & both my cousins had severe injuries. Unfortunately, my cousin also passed away last night after battling for life for days. My bua is still very, very critical & is on life support.
Till date, we don’t know what exactly had happened that night & who did this. I request @PunjabPoliceInd to look into this matter. We at least deserve to know who did this heinous act to them. Those criminals should not be spared to commit more crimes. @capt_amarinder @CMOPb.”
