Pak Match Fixing: Bookie claims Indian link

Posted By: Mamatha
London, Aug 30: The bookie arrested by Scotland Yard for alleged match fixing in the ongoing England-Pakistan Lord's Test claims to have links with bookmakers in India as well.

Mazhar Majeed told an undercover reporter of the News of the World during a sting operation that there are no major activities when the "Indian market is not open."

Pakistan captain Salman Butt, pace duo of Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir and 4 other players were questioned by the Scotland Yard detectives after the bookie, in the video of the sting operation, claimed that the team bowled no-balls for money during the match.

In the the same recording, Majeed claims to know bookmakers in India as well.

"In terms of results, depending on who we are playing, sometimes it can be 300,000 pounds. The max it can be is 450,000 pounds. You can speak to any bookie in India and they will tell you about this information and how much they'll pay" he is quoted as saying.

"I deal with an Indian party. They pay me for the information."
