Stuart MacGill Kidnapped

In the latest development that rocked the entire cricket fraternity, a former Australian international by the name of Stuart MacGill has been kidnapped by four people. However, the country police traced down the four accused and detained the wrongdoers and put them behind the bars.

It is said that four men carried guns and weapons and then kidnapped former Test bowler Stuart MacGill. Thankfully, the police arrested the four people in a pre-dawn raid in Sydney, after the kidnapping of the cricketer in the city’s affluent Lower North Shore last month.

The cops further added saying that on April 14, the former Australian international was confronted by three men at a road junction and then abducted the 50-year-old MacGill into a vehicle. The former Test spinner was driven to a property an hour out of the city after which he was allegedly thrashed and threatened at gunpoint before being released by the goons after the hour-long terrible experience.

While talking to the media reporters, NSW Police superintendent identified as Anthony Holton added that it was just an hour that MacGill was abducted but at the same time felt that it would have been a nightmare to endure.  “I know it was only an hour that he was held but it would have been a horribly frightful hour to endure,” NSW Police Superintendent Anthony Holton told the media. 

Meanwhile, NSW Police superintendent said MacGill knew one of his alleged kidnappers and was literally shocked by the incident. After the shocking incident, a probe was initiated by the police and then they arrested four men aged 27, 29, 42 and 46, in the wee hours of Wednesday.

It is to be noted that Stuart MacGill was hailed as a talented bowler. He represented the Australian national cricket team in 44 Tests. Nonetheless, he was rather unfortunate that his career coincided with that of Australian spin wizard Shane Warne.
