Jayasuriya denies involvement in arecanut issue!

Former Cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya denied any involvement in the racket to export arecanuts to India.

He said this in response to Indian Revenue Intelligence Unit claims that he had been involved in a spoiled arecanut export scam. He denied any involvement with the beetle industry altogether.

The Indian media had reported that two cricketers including Sanath Jayasuriya had been ordered to appear before the Indian Mumbai Revenue Department on December 20.

This matter was published in the New Indian Express, Hindustan Times, Times News, India Today and several other news sites.
