Rs 40,000 crore from cricket fixing funneled to Pakistan for sponsoring anti-terror activities in India, alleges MP Kirti Azad

Mumbai: May 25, 2013

Former India cricketer Kirti Azad on Saturday said in an explosive statement to Times Now that Rs 40,000 crore from cricket fixing lands in Pakistan to fund anti-terror activities in India.

Azad, Member of Parliament, further said that Mumbai Police knew about the activities.

Azad had demanded a ban on the cash-rich T20 league last year after five players were caught on camera for accepting money for spot-fixing by India TV, who had carried out a sting operation.

The allegations by Azad have come at a time when Indian cricket has been rocked by the betting scandal. Three prominent cricketers along with a few bookies have already been arrested for spot-fixing.

Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh and son-in-law of BCCI President N Srinivasan, Gurunath Meiyappan have also been arrested by the Mumbai Crime Branch for their alleged involvement in betting in the ongoing edition of the IPL.
