Asad Rauf, who is facing a life ban since 2016, has a special conversation with Pakistani news channel. He says, ‘I do this work not for myself but for the salary of my staff. I umpired my life. Visited many countries. There is nothing left in my life that I have not done. In IPL 2013, the BCCI had also made an accused in the spot-fixing scandal on allegations of contact with bookies and receiving gifts from bookies.
There have also been allegations of rape
In 2012, a model from Mumbai had accused Asad Rauf of rape. The model said that both she and Asad Rauf were in love with each other. Rauf had more physical relations with her by promising marriage, but later retracted. However, Rauf had vehemently denied these allegations. When asked again the question on the same case, he says, ‘When the girl’s matter came, I went to umpire in the next year also in the IPL.’
Rauf says, ‘It is my habit to reach the top of whatever work I do. I played cricket, I reached the peak. And then when I started as an umpire, I reached the top there too. Now the new shift is as a shopkeeper. I sincerely hope that here too I will reach the top. I have no greed. I’ve seen a lot of money. I have two children. One is handicapped and the other has recently returned from America after completing graduation.
