|Karachi, June 21(ANI): Shamed Pakistan former Test captain Salman Butt would be released soon from prison in Britain, according to his father.
Butt was put behind the bars for 30 months last November on charges of accepting corrupt payments during the Lord's Test against England in August 2010.
His teammates Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer, and agent Mazhar Majeed were also jailed for engineering premeditated no-balls in return for money.
Aamer was released in February after serving half of his six-month sentence while Asif, jailed for 12 months, was freed in May.
"We expect him to be released tonight. My son's good behaviour has led to the decision and he will be in Pakistan in the next three to four days," Sports24 quoted Butt's father Zulfiqar, as saying.
The three players were banned for at least five years by the International Cricket Council (ICC), which has ordered the Pakistan Cricket Board to rehabilitate the former stars. (ANI)
