New Delhi: Veteran Indian cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh are under a spot of bother as they may face the investigators probing the 45,000-crore Pearls Group ponzi scheme, as per media reports.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is preparing a list of celebrities who were involved with the scheme that duped crores of gullible investors.
Both the Punjab cricketers Yuvi and Bhajji allegedly received plots of lands in Mohali as gifts.
The veteran players have been named in the Twenty20 International (T20I) squad against Australia.
Last week, the managing director of the Chandigarh-based Pearls Group, Nirmal Singh Bhangoo, was arrested for duping investors in blatant violation of the law. The group was accused of fleecing investors by running operations under new names.
Interestingly, the Pearls Group also roped in former Australian pacer Brett Lee to be a brand ambassador in Australia.
