Sunday Times of London is ready to provide evidence that Nupur Mehta was involved in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 India Pakistan match fixing.

When Nupur Mehta threatened the newspaper to sue, it counter attacked by claiming to produce strong evidences against her. ICC has even denied the reports of match fixing.

James Mellor, spokesman of the Sunday Times, said from London

The Sunday Times stands by its story which raises important questions about the integrity of cricket. We are aware of the comments made by Nupur Mehta. Our dossier of evidence will be made available to the International Cricket Council (ICC) which has agreed to investigate the matter in full. In the circumstances, we will be making no further comment at this time.

Another official of the newspaper, Olivia, claims, “We have had many emails on the subject.”

On the other hand ICC has declared that it will not investigate the matter nor is it interested any kind of legal action against the newspaper.

Nupur Mehta is still baffled at the newspaper and asks them to show the evidence they are talking about. “I will ask The Sunday Times to show me the proof. Want to know what their concrete information is before claiming big things like “having proof””, says Nupur.

Adding further she says, “I have no clue as to what kind of information they have, but with such statements they are creating a huge pressure on me. Let them show me the proof, I will face it boldly. I am not going to run away anywhere or go into hiding because of all this controversy. I have met my lawyers and we shall go ahead with the required legal proceedings,” says the agonized Nupur Mehta.
