Veena Malik a match-fixer, claims Dixit

first_imgTainted photojournalist Dheeraj Dixit has accused Pakistani actor Veena Malik of fixing matches involving Pakistani cricketers. Although Dixit had earlier said he had nothing to do with match-fixing, he did a U-turn on Thursday, claiming that Veena had approached him while he was covering a cricket series in Dhaka in January. He alleged that Veena asked him for help since he knew many cricketers.  Dixit claimed Veena managed match-fixing for six or seven Pakistani cricketers.  He said he had filed a complaint with the Mumbai Police as he was getting threatening calls from Pakistan. Dixit had earlier been accused of match-fixing by Veena, the former girlfriend of match-fixing-tainted Pakistani cricketer Mohd Asif.  Dixit said Veena had made references about a person called ‘Maj’, who he later realised was Mazhar Majid, the same person who was caught in a UK tabloid sting fixing an England-Pakistan match.last_img
