Mumbai. Gurunath Meiyappan and Vindoo Dara Singh, who were found to be betting on allegedly fixed matches in IPL, have been found betting again. This time over allegedly fixed interviews of Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi, which were broadcast last night on Aaj Tak and India TV respectively.
“Yes, we found them betting on what questions will be asked and what will not be asked during the interviews last night,” a Mumbai police official confirmed.
“They also predicted answers and won money when Rahul Gandhi or Narendra Modi came up with exactly the same answers,” the official revealed.
Sources say that the duo was trying to recover the money they allegedly lost while betting on IPL matches.
“It remains a mystery on how did they lose money despite knowing that the matches were fixed. But this time, they claim to have made money,” the police officer told Faking News.
While experts on Twitter claimed that the incidence proved that both the interviews were fixed, Gurunath and Vidoo have denied that they had any such prior information.
“Ah come on! This was easier than betting on IPL matches,” Vindoo claimed, “I mean, anyone can predict with more certainty that Rahul will say ‘RTI’ than Raina getting out on a short ball. What is fixing over here?”
“Similarly about Modi,” Gurunath quipped, “The fact that questions will follow some restrictions was always known as field restrictions in T20 matches. Those are rules of the game, not fixing.”
Latest reports say that while many appeared convinced, Arnab Goswami has decided to trend #ShutUpFixers on Twitter and expose the hollow claims of the duo tonight.
