<p>Zohaib Rasheed traveled to Italy to compete in a qualifying competition for the Olympics.</p>
<p>According to a top federation official, they reported the event to the Pakistani Embassy in Italy and also filed a police complaint.</p>
<p>Colonel Nasir Ahmed, the secretary of the national federation, said, “It is most embarrassing for the federation and country the way Zohaib Rasheed has behaved as he had gone there as part of a five-member squad to take part in an Olympic qualifying tournament.”</p>
<p>Zohaib was considered a rising prospect in Pakistan after winning a bronze medal in the Asian Boxing Championships the previous year.</p>
<p>Laura Ikram, a female boxer, had left for training, according to Nasir, and Zohaib had taken her room keys from the front desk and her foreign cash out of a bag before she vanished from the hotel.</p>
<p>“The police have been informed and they are now searching for him but he is not in contact with anyone,” Nasir said.</p>
<p>Athletes from Pakistan have disappeared overseas with their national team before in the hopes of a brighter future.</p>
