Former Pakistan cricket captain Javed Miandad has cancelled his trip to India in the wake of a political controversy over Indian authorities granting him a visa. Miandad, whose son is married to the daughter of fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim, wanted in India in connection with the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case, was to watch the India-Pakistan ODI in New Delhi on January 6.

But opposition parties criticised the issuance of a visa to Miandad, following which he called off the visit.

The government, meanwhile, maintained that proper procedures were followed and made it clear that this did not reflect any change in its stand on Ibrahim.
