"The Uttaranchal police approached us with a non-bailable warrant after they were not able to find him at his house," he said.The police registered a case of cheating against Prabhakar and two others inJune last year for allegedly swindling public money raised by the Uttaranchal-based Apace Indian Group of Companies. Prabhakar was one of its directors.The former cricketer has denied the allegation. He said he was in no way linked to any of the companies of the group, but did join their promotion campaign as a cricketer.The police, however, claimed they had evidence against him in four cases of fraud. Prabhakar, according to them, undertook a massive public campaign during which he addressed several meetings to collect funds for the schemes.The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) last year accused Prabhakar of fixing cricket matches. He had allegedly introduced well-known bookmaker M K Gupta to several international players.Prabhakar has been barred for five years from playing cricket.IANS
