We can discuss things with people but sharing information is different. I will get in touch with my legal adviser and then I can tell you," Rauf said.<br /> <br /> Asked if he knew <a href="/tags/Vindoo-Dara-Singh/post" target="_blank">Vindoo Dara Singh</a>, who was also named in the chargesheet, Rauf said: "I have thousands of friends but that doesn't mean that if my friends does something then I also have to do anything with that.<br /> <br /> "Let them proof something. I mean, if it was the case that I have taken a favour or a gift or money was given to me ... you got to prove allegations," said Rauf, who was named "wanted accused" along with 15 bookies from Pakistan.<br /> <br /> Rauf said he would explain his stand to ICC's Anti-corruption unit.<br /> <br /> "I have been an employee of ICC. ICC has their own Anti-corruption unit. Like police they also investigate. When they call me, I will answer them through my legal adviser. I have done five IPLs and my decisions have been 100 per cent correct. I will answer to ICC regarding my allegations," Rauf said.
