KARACHI: Federal Interior Minister Rehman A Malik said the investigative team of Pakistan would jump into probe after the report by Scotland Yard is finally made public, Geo News reported Tuesday.
Talking to media along with Federal Sports Minister Aijaz Jakhrani here, he sought people of Pakistan to hold on until Scotland Yard police report, adding ‘We have written a letter regarding collaboration on the investigations with Scotland Yard and elicited from them the investigative report.
Responding a question about the video, the federal minister said the video may be forged, adding action would be taken against any players if found involved in the match-fixing scandal.
Aijaz said, ‘The incident caused cutting grief to the fans of cricket and we don’t need to send any other team to London.’
Rehman said the government did not rule out any anti-Pakistan conspiracy in the scam, and if there is any plot in the making, it should be uncovered.
The police in the two countries may join hands in the probe under agreement between the two countries, he clarified.
