bookies of UK-based call reality 'item' girl for IPL fixing!



Item girl Liza Malik known for her publicised proposal to 'turbunator' Harbhajan Singh in reality show 'Dancing Queen' has fallen into the net of International book makers.

Liza, who is a stage performer, has done several concerts in which IPL and Indian cricketers were involved in past but an anonymous International call has changed her life.

Liza is receiving haunting calls from a UK-based bookmaker who calls himself Razz (Razaaq) and wants Malik to play bait for the cricketers.

"He said I would offer you Rs 5 million if I could convince certain cricketers to play as per his equations.

I tried to dissuade him that I am mere a performer and was not even acquaintance with the cricketers but he kept on emphasizing about my controversy with Bhajji," says petrified Liza.

Liza was linked with Harbhajan Singh during her stint in reality show 'Dancing Queen' where this item girl had proposed turbunator for marriage. 

"I was in Thailand when the calls started pouring in from an unknown International number code +344/+4044 (displayed on cell phone). The caller insisted that I was close to couple of cricketers and asked for a forced conversation with them," said liza.

She added, "After I turned rude with the caller, he smirked and threatened me of dire consequences. 

It seemed that he was tracking me as he was aware of my overseas location (Thailand)," elaborates Liza who finally approached the local Oshiwara police station in Mumbai and registered a non cognisable offence against him.

"A non cognisable offence under section 307 IPC (issuing threats through phone calls) has been registered against an unknown person," says a police officer on the basis of anonymity. 

Liza came in spotlight with her music album 'Simply Liza' in which she was introduced with the controversial Mika Singh.
