Lahore: Going a step further after claiming that her former boyfriend Mohammad Asif has links with bookies, actress-model Veena Malik said Pakistan Cricket Board all along knew about this and all national cricketers and officials are ‘involved in match-fixing from head to toe’.
Malik said she will meet on Thursday ICC’s anti-corruption unit official Reza Hasan who arrived in the country on Wednesday regarding her revelations that Asif has links with Indian bookies.
“A senior police officer called me on phone today and told me that an ICC anti-corruption unit official will meet me tomorrow to ascertain the veracity of the revelations I made about Asif and his links with Indian bookies,” Malik said.
“Pakistan Cricket Board had evidence of this but no action was taken against Asif. From head to toe, Pakistani players and officials are involved in match-fixing,” Malik claimed.
She reiterated that Asif was involved in match fixing and his links with bookies had come to light when she travelled with him to Bangkok before Pakistan’s tour of Australia.
“Asif told me he was offered USD 40,000 by an Indian bookie to underperform in Australia but he had demanded 200,000 dollars,” she said.
Malik said Asif’s links with bookies was the reason why she broke off with him.
“I did not want him to indulge in such activities,” she said.
