Dawood Nammi, the Iranian coach of Aamir Khan Academy Islamabad, has filed an application in Aabpara police station in the federal capital against internationally acclaimed British boxer Amir Khan and his brother over life threats issued to him, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

The Iranian coach, in its application, said “Boxer Amir Khan threatened me to leave the academy or I would be picked up by the police.”

“After Aamir Khan's threat, his brother Haroon stormed the academy with several others and tortured me. Haroon and his accomplices threatened me kill me if the academy was not handed over to them.”

He claimed that he was hired at Rs35,000 around four years ago and has not been paid for the last few months.

“I am facing life threats from Amir Khan and something happened to me, then Amir Khan and his brother should be held responsible,” the Iranian coach said. 

He alleged that Amir Khan and his brother wanted to get rid of him without paying my outstanding dues. The Iranian coach disclosed that Amir Khan’s father brought him for coaching at the academy.
