After losing their first T20 match against Zimbabwe yesterday, the Indian team has faced yet another blow, as a member of the squad has been allegedly arrested by Harare Police on rape charges.

According to a report published in a leading newspaper, the incident happened on Friday night at the Meiklis Hotel where the players are staying.

The shocking news has triggered headache among the BCCI members in India.

The name of the player is still unknown, while BCCI is trying hard to cover up this issue, as this may create widespread unrest in India where people consider Cricket as a religion and cricketers as demi-Gods.

As per close sources, it is being known that the Cricket Council has started pressurizing the Indian High Commissioner to resolve the issue without any legal action.

Charity Charemba, the concerned official, has confirmed the mishap.

She said the officers are not in a position to reveal more about the rapist.

However, she confirmed that he has been presented in front of the court on Saturday. She added that investigations regarding the case are complete, and the matter has to be taken care with utmost alertness, as it will create a diplomatic strife among the two countries.

Contrary to the available information, ANI has reported that the convicted personality is not an Indian player, but an affiliate with one of the sponsors.

Sources from the hotel in which the squad is residing stated that the victim was drugged before sexual exploitation.

The victim has claimed that she regained consciousness with bloodied undergarments, and was not sure regarding the things which occurred on the night.

More updates concerning this controversial case are expected to be out in the following hours.

India is trailing the t20 series 0-1 with the next game on Monday.
