Wriddhiman Saha, days after alleging that he was intimidated by a journalist for not giving an interview, on Saturday said that he has revealed all details to a BCCI committee probing the matter. The journalist, Boria Majumdar, identified himself as the accused. 

“I have told the committee everything I know. I have shared all the details with them. I can’t tell you much right now. BCCI has asked me not to talk about the meeting outside as they will answer all your queries,” Saha told reporters after appearing before the committee.

Majumdar also said that he was filing a defamation suit against the discarded India glovesman.
