The other three boxers and Coach Arshad Hussain had to leave without them despite the Pakistan boxing team management’s best efforts to locate them.

Sources claim that the team management has the passports and tickets for the boxers. Their disappearance has also been reported to the competent authorities and the Commonwealth Games organizers.

Additionally, the police have started looking for the missing boxers. It should be mentioned that during the sports event, ten athletes from Sri Lanka also went missing.
