New Delhi:Amid apprehensions that Nicky Boje could be detained by Delhi Police for match-fixing interrogations, South Africa's Deputy High Commissioner D M Nxiwemi today met Commissioner of Police KK Paul to discuss the issue.

The diplomat is understood to have sought an assurance from Delhi Police that Boje would not be detained during the team's tour of India starting on November 12.

Nxiwemi also said Boje would co-operate fully with the Police in the investigations.

Boje and one of his teammates Herschelle Gibbs have been under the cloud for their alleged involvement in the Hansie Cronje match-fixing scandal in 2000.

While Gibbs opted out of the tour fearing interrogation, Boje, who has been named vice-captain, agreed to tour on the condition that he would not be detained.
