Tamim Iqbal denies attempted 'acid attack' led to shock Essex exit

Tamim Iqbal denies attempted 'acid attack' led to shock Essex exit

Reports in the papers stated that the 28-year-old's wife was the victim of an attempted acid attack, which was the reason why he had made a decision to go back home.

He cited "personal reasons" for the sudden departure, but it was reported in Bangladesh media that his wife and young son had been targeted by a "hate crime". This is really not true.

Essex refused to comment on the reports and echoed Iqbal's comments. According to a report in Bangladesh's Daily Star website, Tamim, wife Ayesha and one-year-old son were alleged attacked after which they returned home. "England is one my of favourite places to play cricket and Essex have been entirely gracious even though I had to leave early".

Get Ready For The IIFA Awards From July 13-15
Over 25,000 people are expected to attend Rahman's concert and over 40,000 people will be present at the awards. Shahid Kapoor has been nominated for the IIFA awards for the best actor for his performance in Udta Punjab .

The left-hander was to play eight matches for Essex but his exit means he will further not take part in the series apart from the one he already played.

"Essex County Cricket Club can confirm that overseas player, Tamim Iqbal, has left the Club with immediate effect due to personal reasons", a spokesperson said. The West Indies team bus being pelted with stones when they left the Mirpur stadium after a game against Bangladesh during the 2011 World Cup received worldwide coverage and condemnation, and rightly so. Iqbal was one of the star players of last month's Champions Trophy tournament in England, where the Tigers reached the semifinal before losing to eventual runners-up India.

"We wish him all the best and it would be appreciated if his privacy is respected", Essex said in a statement on Tuesday.
