New Delhi:Even as South Africa's Deputy High Commissioner D M Nxiwemi met Delhi Police commissioner K K Paul today, the questioning of cricketer Nicky Boje in connection with match-fixing case of 2000 was not ruled out.

A senior police official said that there was no change in Delhi Police's stand that Boje would be questioned whenever available.

He, however, refused to divulge the modalities for the examining of the cricketer, whose name figures among the accused in the sensational case, which has already claimed the careers of several cricketers.

Nxiwemi 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.

Earlier BCCI had also written to Paul seeking to know Delhi Police' stand on the issue.
