    Indian officials offered Rs20m to drop out of 2014 Asian squash championship: Farhan Mehboob

    Pakistani squash player Farhan Mehboob on Saturday claimed that he had been offered Rs20 million by Indian officials to drop out of a match during the 2014's Asian Squash Team Championship, DawnNewsTV reported.

    During a conversation with journalists following the CNS International Squash Championship, held recently in Karachi, Mehboob said he was approached by the Indian officials who pretended to be match-fixers during the 2014 tournament.

    The squash player claimed that he had refused the offer and told the officials that he "would not sell [his] country even if [he's] offered a billion rupees".

    Mehboob said he had immediately informed his coach, manager, and officials of the Pakistan Squash Federation about the incident.

    Pakistan had clinched the 2014's Asian Squash Team Championship title by defeating Malaysia and Mehboob was the star player of the Pakistani side that year.

    India had ended up at the third spot in the tournament.

    You are perhaps not aware that Squash as a sport has not much following in India & chances of betting and hence rigging are zilch . Of course as Pakistani it is convenient for you to ignore this whenever a opportunity to slander Indians presents itself .

    For most of the Indians, squash is something you drink. It's a sport for the elite.

    Those officials should be locked up for a long time and the Indian squash fed should be suspended for at least 5 years.
