Pakistan court rejects Ahmed's bail

Lahore, Pakistan:

A Pakistani court rejected bail application of former Test cricketer Ijaz Ahmed on Monday, his lawyer said.

"We had applied for bail on medical grounds as Ijaz was not feeling well, but the judge rejected our application," Kashid Javed told reporters.

Last Friday, the court remanded Ahmed, 40, in custody for 14 days for issuing checks worth more than $130,000 without sufficient funds to cover them.

He was arrested March 26 for allegedly writing checks to two property dealers that were dishonored.

Javed said he planned to refile the bail application this week.

Ahmed played 60 Tests and scored 3,315 runs for Pakistan before retiring in 2001. He was also a member of Pakistan's World Cup-winning squad in 1992 and scored 6,564 runs in 250 limited-overs internationals.
