Lahore: Former Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Director Dr Muhammad Rizwan has died of a heart attack on Monday, GNN reported. 

According to details, Dr Rizwan was rushed to Lahore's Services Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead. 

Mr. Rizwan was posted as Director FIA Punjab and was removed from the post as soon as the present government came. 

It is pertinent to mention here that Dr Rizwan was heading the entire investigations of FIA against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif and his family in the Ramzan Sugar Mills case, Jahangir Khan Tareen in the JDW Sugar Mills case, the family of federal minister Khusro Bakhtiar as well as the Chaudaries of Gujrat in the Alliance Sugar Mills case. 

In 2018, when the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government formed, Rizwan remained attached to Asset Recovery Unit (ARU) led by Shahzad Akbar. Which later earned him the post of Director FIA Lahore Zone-I in December 2019.

Former Pakistan Pacer Umar Gul Appointed Bowling Coach

Kabul: Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) has appointed former Pakistan speedster, Umar Gul, for a period of one year. Gul’s first assignment with the Afghanistan side will be on their limited-overs tour of Zimbabwe next month.

The former pacer has earlier worked with the board as a bowling consultant for their three-week training camp held in Dubai in April alongside mate Younis Khan as the batting coach.

However, on seeing his performance with the team, ACB is delighted to announce the extension in the role.

This will be Gul’s first coaching assignment in international cricket after serving as the bowling coach of Quetta Gladiators in the 2021 season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

The 37-year-old is widely regarded as one of the finest pacers, particularly in T20 cricket. Gul had an exceptional record in T20Is as he picked up 85 wickets at an average of 16.97 and an economy rate of 7.19 in 60 matches in a T20I career spanning almost 9 years. Gul retired from all forms of cricket in 2019 and has since worked as a coach.

The former pacer has previously coached in Pakistan’s premier T20 tournament, Pakistan Super League (PSL), as a bowling coach for Quetta Gladiators. He has also worked as a coach in the Kashmir Premier League (KPL) and was the head coach of Galle Gladiators in the previous edition of the Lanka Premier League (LPL).
