Sports: Snooker: Pak cueists await Indian visas once more


Karachi: Although ten days have passed since Pakistan Billiards and Snooker Association (PBSA) has submitted relevant documents of its junior cueists, who are looking forward to compete in Asian Junior Snooker Championship, for Indian visas, which are yet to be issued.

The Asian Junior Snooker Championship scheduled to be held in India has once been postponed due to the non-issuance of Indian visas for cueists from many countries including Pakistan.

Muhammad Majid Ali, Muhammad Haris Nadeem, Hamza Akbar and Amir Tariq will represent Pakistan in the tournament.

PBSA has submitted the Visa applications along with the necessary clearance letters of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports, Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of External Affairs, received from the Billiards and Snooker Federation of India (BSFI) for the Pakistan team to the High Commission of India in Islamabad.

PBSA has also sent three reminders to the High Commission of India for the issuance of the visas of the Pakistan team so that the colts could participate in the tournament.

Pakistan junior squad is scheduled to leave for Mohali, Chandigarh – the host city of the event, on June 5 from Lahore through Wagah border.
