FIR registered against Azharuddin, 2 others for duping travel agent


Aurangabad: An FIR has been registered against three people including former cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin for allegedly duping a travel agent, Mohammad Shadab, of more than Rs 20 lakh.

However, Mohammad Azharuddin has refuted allegations and said: “I strongly rubbish the false FIR filed against me in Aurangabad. I am consulting my legal team and would be taking action as necessary.”
