Slumdog star Rubina Ali’s father cleared of chargesApril 25th, 2009 - 1:28 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Apr 25 (ANI): Indian police has dropped the investigation against Slumdog Millionaire star Rubina Ali’s father over allegations he attempted to sell his daughter.
The authorities insist that they have failed to find any evidence to back claims that he offered to auction off the nine-year-old for 200,000 pounds.
Rafiq Qureshi was arrested and quizzed by police in Mumbai earlier this week (20Apr09) after British newspaper News of the World broke the news.
Qureshi protested his innocence throughout the scandal, telling People.com the story was a “lie made up by foreign journalists playing games with me”.
“There is not any crime. The matter is closed. No money changed hands. Rubina is here. There is no crime,” Contactmusic quoted senior police inspector Rahim Shaikh as saying. (ANI)
