I strongly rubbish the false FIR filed against me in Aurangabad. I’m consulting my legal team, and would be taking actions as necessary pic.twitter.com/6XrembCP7T— Mohammed Azharuddin (@azharflicks) January 22, 2020
Azharuddin, who is now the president of Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA), dismissed the allegations. He said “there is no truth” in the complaint.
“There is no truth in this complaint and is made just to be in limelight. The allegations made in the complaint are baseless. I will seek legal advice and file defamation case worth Rs 100 crore against the complainant,” Azharuddin said in a video posted on his Twitter account.
