Lahore: The family members of banned former Pakistan captain Salman Butt, who is facing the possibility of a jail term, jumped to his defence on Tuesday accusing the local media of being "unhelpful" to him.
Butt's sister snubbed the waiting media outside the former captain's home. "You should realize that you, the media is not being helpful by conducting a media trial of Salman. We know our brother is innocent of all these charges", she said in a distraught mood.
She insisted that since the spot-fixing scandal broke out last year, the media had been conducting a media trial of her brother instead of being balanced and neutral and this had not helped his case.
