Islamabad, Mar 14 (ANI): Britain has denied the baby son of Pakistan's jailed former captain Salman Butt a visa, crushing the family's hopes of visiting him at the Wandsworth Prison in southern London, his father has claimed.
Salman and two other team mates, Mohammad Aamer and Mohammad Asif, were sentenced by a British court last November for spot fixing during the 2010 Lord's Test against England.
While Salman was sentenced for 30 months and Asif for 12 months, Aamer was released last month after serving half of his six-month suspended sentence.
The Daily Times quoted Salman's father Zulfiqar as saying that his daughter-in-law Gul "wanted to take both her sons to meet their father, but the youngest son Ayan was refused a visa by the British High Commission for a second time."
Ayan was born just minutes after Salman was sentenced on November 3 last year and he has never seen his father.
Zulfiqar said though the mother and the elder son had valid visas, "the refusal of a visa for the younger son has halted their visit and we are considering appealing on humanitarian grounds."
The British High Commission in Islamabad said it could not comment on individual visa applications. (ANI)
