Cricket no-ball poisoning leads to kin's death

Tue, May 31, 2016, 01:52 PM
The sleepy town of Jarara near Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh has JPL which is as emotional as the IPL final in Bangalore. The Jarara Premier League final witnessed a disputed no-ball which led to the poisoning of a girl to death and alarming condition of three of her friends.

Wailing was witnessed on the pitch in Bangalore at the IPL final. Demonstrating how vicious satta cricket can be, JPL near Aligarh claimed a life.

The stakes in JPL were not as high as IPL. In the JPL final, the winner takes Rs 5100 home. That did not lessen the severity.

As the no-ball was called by the umpire in the Jarara final, the Captain of the losing team, Sandip Pal, disputed the call and urged his rival, Raj Kumar, to condone the call so the extra run penalty and free hit would not be levied. Raj Kumar refused. Sandip told him he would have to lose a family member because of the refusal. Raj Kumar ignored the remark.

The match was won by Raj Kumar's team on the day, but worse was to follow for his family.

Sandip lay in wait for an opportunity to claim a life of Raj Kumar's family. As Raj Kumar's 15-year-old sister, Pooja, was walking on the road, Sandip, who knew her, offered her a soft drink. It was spiked with poison. He similarly offered soft drinks to Pooja's three friends also. All of the them had the drink.

All the girls developed complications due to soft drink poisioning. Pooja was rushed to hospital where she was declared dead due to poisoning. The other three girls were shifted to a hospital in Aligarh where they were said to be in a critical condition.

IPL or JPL, cricket can raise unnecessary passions, which are avoidable.
