Meanwhile, Raina’s franchise CSK has shown support to him and asked him to stay strong during this period. He was in UAE for the upcoming season of the IPL but took a flight back to India after hearing this news.
Raina had earlier in the day taken to Twitter seeking help from Punjab police and the CM.
“Till date we don’t know what exactly had happened that night & who did this. I request @PunjabPoliceInd to look into this matter. We at least deserve to know who did this heinous act to them. Those criminals should not be spared to commit more crimes. @capt_amarinder @CMOPb,” he added.
Raina had been preparing for the IPL from even with the lockdown in place and was eagerly looking forward to playing for CSK. He recently announced his international retirement, moments after his friends and CSK skipper MS Dhoni made the announcement.
With Raina not there, there would be a headache for the management and it would be interesting to see who plays at No 3.
IPL 13 is scheduled to start from September 19.
