Rahul Sharma and Wayne Parnell of the Indian Premier League franchise the Pune Warriors India have both tested positive for drugs consumption at a rave party. They alongside 84 more others have tested positive for hard drugs.
This puts them both in a lot of trouble making their arrests by local police inevitable. They were caught in a police raid that took place at a Juhu Hotel in Mumbai during the 5th edition of the Indian Premier League.
The BCCI, however, stood by the cricketer and said it would investigate the matter thoroughly before deciding the future course of action.
“I don’t know why everyone is in a mood to execute Rahul Sharma without even going into the details. The BCCI will first procure each and every bit of relevant information and then study them before deciding on the course of action.” said Srinivasan.
The Indian team’s media manager Ravi Jain said that they have not received any communication in this regard from the BCCI yet.
After the BBCI will look into the matter only then will a decision be taken on the future of both the players regarding their future in the Indian Premier League.
The others who were caught included actors Apurva Agnihotri, Anshuman Jha, Parth Sharma, Amit Gaur, fashion designer Rocky S, cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi’s son Angad Bedi, celebrities Rahul Dahia, Kartik Jobanputra, DJ brothers Dipesh Sharma and Rakesh Sharma and the hotel director Vishay Handa.
We will have to wait and watch to see what happens to them after the higher authorities will take matters into their hands. Will they be stripped off their chances to play in the Indian Premier League or not, only time will tell.
