Agencies can question me in London: Lalit Modi

As Parliament debated a controversy involving him, controversial former IPL chief Lalit Modi on Wednesday virtually ruled out the possibility of him appearing before the CBI or the Enforcement Directorate (ED), saying agencies can question him in London.

Asked about his reluctance to appear in Indian courts, he told India Today TV, “my lawyers have appeared in every case, why do I need to make a personal appearance? If the CBI, ED wants to come and question me, they can come here to London and I will happily answer all their questions. I have never shied from questions unlike those who attack me.”

“I have a serious threat to my life. The government can provide me no guarantee of security. Only last month, there were reports that a gangster Poojary had put out a hit on me. Chota Shakeel and Dawood want me out because I acted against corruption in cricket and the betting syndicates  which they control,” he said.

He also said an entire Parliament session was stalled on the issue relating to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj helping him in getting travel documents from Britain and it was just politics.
