London: Former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi has rubbished media reports that the Indian government has sought help of British authorities to deport him from the United Kingdom, saying such stories were based on "innuendo and mis-information".

"The continued stories suggesting the Ministry for External Affairs is requesting assistance from the UK authorities to enforce my return to India for questioning are based on innuendo and mis-information," Modi said in a statement.

"The intention is clearly to suggest I am avoiding official requests to co-operate and to give the perception that I therefore have something to hide. The truth of the matter is very different," he said.
