Dad cleared in Slumdog Millionaire star sale

Rubiana Ali and father

The father of Slumdog Millionaire child actor Rubiana Ali has been cleared by Indian officials of allegations he tried to broker the sale of his famous daughter in exchange for £200,000.

Rafiq Qureshi was accused by the News of the World of attempting to profit off his 9-year-old daughter, who plays a young Latika in the film, after the paper set up a sting operation and had a reporter pose as potential buyer masquerading as Arab royalty.

Nisar Tamboli, a senior Mumbai police officer said: “So far there is no evidence of any offense, hence there is no registration of complaint and no arrest.” 

Qureshi has always proclaimed his innocence, claiming that the tabloid “tried to frame” him and had “played dirty.”
