Hindi actress Nupur Mehta denies involvement in match fixing

I am no way involved in the cricket gambling which took place in England.  Further I am to sue the London Sunday Times magazine for publishing my photograph without my consent’ stated Hindi actress Nupur Mehta.

Sunday Times magazine released a report.  ‘Bookies from India involved themselves in extensive gambling in the county cricket which is being held in London.   These bookies fix the end of the cricket matches.  They have tagged a price for every head.’

‘Moreover they use the name of Hindi cine actresses for their moves.  They allure cricketers using these actresses.’

It was alleged that the India – Pakistan match which took place last year was also fixed.  Further, the report alleged that the ICC is to enquire into the issue.

In this article, Sunday Times published a glamorous photograph of actress Nupur Mehta.  But Nupur has denied claims of her involvement in the gambling.

Speaking regarding this she mentioned ‘The photograph which is in the article is of course mine.  But there is no connection between me and those complaints.  These are baseless accusations.’

‘The Sunday Times magazine has used my photograph without my consent.  I am to sue the magazine for that.  Due to this photograph, my mental peace is disturbed.  I am in mental distress and this has caused blemish to my name.’

‘I do not know any cricketer individually.  I have never maintained contact with any of them.  I do not know any bookie.  I have never witnessed the matches.  I do not know how my name has been dragged into this.’

Nupur has acted in Sunny Deol’s ‘Jo Bhole So Nihaal’.  It is noteworthy that the Sunday Times magazine has used the still for the movie in release of photograph.

ICC refutes Sunday Times report

The ICC has denied the report released in Sunday Times.  It has described the report as a distracting one.

The ICC has denied reports that it is to enquire into the matter of India – Pakistan semifinal match. 

ICC speaking regarding this mentioned ‘This is wrong news.  Also, it is distracting one.  There is no facet or reason for ICC to enquire into the semifinal match. That one is the wonderful match ever in the world cup history.’

ICC’s former corruption prevention division’s head Ravi Sawani has condemned the report released in Sunday Times.  Speaking regarding this he mentioned ‘The semifinal match between India and Pakistan is a clean one.  There is no necessity for doubt in that.’
