Karachi: A snooker series between arch-rivals Pakistan and India has been postponed after the neighbouring country refused to send its players due to bad law and order situation in Karachi.
The snooker series was scheduled to begin in Karachi from March 7.
A powerful bomb in Karachi’s Abbas Town in Sunday evening killed 48 people and left 140 others injured.
“Indian Travel Advisory Board has restricted the Indian Snooker team to travel to Pakistan due to security concerns,” the Pakistan Billiards and Snooker Federation (PBSF) said on Tuesday.
The PBSF said that Indian players were issued visa last week, however the series had been postponed and new dates would be announced later.
