An official inquiry into the drugs case against Pakistan paceman Mohammad Asif in Dubai is over, with the findings handed over to the attorney general, a Pakistani cricket official said Sunday.

Asif, 25, was seized at Dubai airport last Sunday while returning home from India after featuring in a domestic cricket event.

He appeared before a Dubai prosecutor Thursday on charges of possessing an illegal substance. Asif has said he is innocent.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official Nadeem Akram told AFP on Sunday that the attorney general may "either frame charges against Asif or may announce the decision on Monday."

Akram, who was speaking to AFP from Dubai by telephone, said he had met Asif on Sunday and found him to be in "high spirits".

"I met Asif as he needed some money and he was still in high spirits as he is innocent," said Akram.

PCB chief operating officer Shafqat Naghmi said Thursday the board had received medical reports on Asif ordered by Dubai authorities, but he could not not disclose details.
