The Umpire Strikes Back

by duncanr

A bangladeshi youth, Nazrul Islam (aged 15) has died in hospital from internal bleeding following an argument with a cricket umpire.

The youth ran on to the pitch to dispute the umpire’s decision during an amateur cricket match in Kishoreganj. An argument ensued which got more heated until the umpire struck the youth on the head with a bat.

Nazrul showed no ill effects of the blow at the time but was admitted to hospital later that night suffering from internal bleeding and died the following morning.

The police are seeking to question the umpire about the incident. He, on the other hand, is not so eager to be questioned and has gone into hiding
