Aleem Dar offers free food at his Lahore restaurant

Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar has offered to provide free food at his restaurant in Lahore for the unemployed people amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Over 1,200 confirmed coronavirus cases have been reported so far in Pakistan while nine people have lost their lives.

Dar runs a restaurant under the name Dar's Delighto and he has announced that people, who have lost their jobs due to Covid-19 pandemic, can have their meals at his restaurant.

"Coronavirus has spread all over the world and its effects are now being seen in Pakistan as well," Dar in a video message. "However, without our support, our government cannot control this. I request all people to follow the instructions as directed by the government.

"During this lockdown, people have become jobless. I own a restaurant named Dar's Delighto on Pia Road in Lahore. People who don't have a job now, can come there and eat food for free," added the 51-year-old Dar, who has officiated in 386 international matches - the most by anyone.
