PESHAWAR: IG Police Malik Naved Khan has issued orders for hiring unemployed player Mohammad Asim as constable after a news report appeared on Geo TV that the disappointed swimmer of the province sold his medals on not getting a job.
Director-general Pakistan Sports Board Ameer Hamza Gilani said that he did not know about Asimís case but he asked for every possible step for Mohammad Asim.
However, he said that initially this is the responsibility of the provincial associations to get Asim a job.
Secretary Pakistan Swimming Federation Major Majid Waseem said that the report telecast about Asim is more a fiction than a reality. He was invited twice to the camp but he did not attend it. However, his unemployment is a big issue.
