Days after accusing Pakistani cricketer Babar Azam of sexual assault, a woman has come forward with fresh allegations involving death threats and a murder attempt.

The woman has claimed that armed men in a motorcycle had opened fire at her vehicle near the Kahna Police Station in Lahore. "My life is in danger. I have been receiving death threats for days,," she was quoted as saying by a news agency. The woman had earlier alleged that Babar Azam physically abused her after getting her pregnant. She reportedly stated, "He (Babar Azam) promised to marry me, he got me pregnant, he beat me up, he threatened me and he used me. I have known Babar since the time he had nothing to do with cricket. He was from a poor household. He was my school friend. In 2010, he proposed to me and I accepted his proposal. We had planned to get married and informed our families too but they refused. Then Babar and I decided to have a court marriage. In 2011, Babar and I eloped and having promised me of marriage, kept me at rented places. During that time, I kept asking him to get married but he said 'we are not in a position to. With time, we will get married'."

The woman then mentioned that Babar, aided by his friends, got her abortion done as well. "In 2017, I made a police complaint against Babar at the Nasiraba station. He has exploited me for 10 years, both physically and sexually," she said, adding that the cricketer had also threatened to kill her. The matter is currently under investigation.
