Suresh Raina out of IPL

Suresh Raina had travelled to Dubai for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League. He quit the tournament citing ‘personal reasons.’ Numerous ‘theories’ had been doing the rounds about his decision, right from ‘suite’-gate to alleged rift with CSK captain MS Dhoni, days after both had announced their international retirement on the same day. His latest tweets, however, almost certainly confirm his personal reasons, though the hotel rift may also have taken place.

The incident

As per PTI, the incident had taken place in Punjab’s Pathankot district on the night intervening August 19 and 20. The report claimed the attack was carried by four members of the Kale Kachhewala gang with an intention to loot their house in Thariyal village near Madhopur of Pathankot.

Pathankot Senior Superintendent of Police Gulneet Singh Khurana confirmed the death of a person named Ashok Kumar. At that time, his exact relation with Raina had not been established.  The robbers left with cash and gold.

Ashok’s wife Asha Devi, sons Apin and Kuashal sustained injuries, while Ashok’s mother Satya Devi has been discharged from the hospital, Pathankot Superintendent of Police Prabhjot Singh Virk informed.
