New Delhi, Dec 5 (UNI) The Delhi Police today issued notice to South African cricketer Nicky Boje to join investigations in connection with the 2000 match fixing scandal also involving late Proteas skipper Hansie Cronje.
Nicky Boje, who is in India to play in the Indian Cricket League matches, has been sent a notice at Chandigarh as he is at Panchkula, Haryana, at present for the ICL's inaugural Twenty20 tournament.
Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said the notice has been issued to Boje under Section 160 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which requires the attendance of a person if he is found to be "acquainted with the facts and circumstances of the case." Boje is playing for 'Hyderabad Heroes' in the breakaway league which began on November 30 in Panchkula.
Boje along with late South African skipper Hansie Cronje and opener Herschelle Gibbs has been at the centre of the scam.
Delhi Police had intercepted Cronje's conversation with bookies in India in which he later admitted to striking deals for throwing away matches during the India-South Africa one-day matches in India in 2000.
Boje and Gibbs were also found guilty of being a part of their captain's conspiracy in the King's Commission inquiry held in South Africa and were heavily fined but got away with just six-month ban for their involvement.
