Rauf was withdrawn from next month’s Champions Trophy in England amid media reports that he is under police investigation for spot-fixing, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Thursday.
A police official said “we are investigating all the angles”, adding that Rauf “has not been called in for interrogation”.
The ICC said the decision to withdraw Rauf was made after media reports on Wednesday “that the Mumbai police are conducting an investigation” into the umpire’s activities.
