LONDON: Uncomfortable with the attention they are receiving from fellow inmates, Pakistani cricketers Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif want to be transferred to a jail in their own country to serve their sentences for being involved in the spot-fixing scam.

According to a report in The Independent, the cricketers, who were convicted of conspiracy to cheat and conspiracy to accept corrupt payments, “have asked to be returned to their home country, to serve the remainder of their sentence.”Former Pakistan Test captain Butt and pacer Asif have “told their lawyers that they would prefer to be sent to a jail in Pakistan, because the attention they are receiving from fellow inmates is leading to fears for their safety. A high court application is expected to be made within the next eight weeks.” (PTI)
