New Delhi:

An irate DDCA President Arun Jaitley on Tuesday lashed out at Kirti Azad for claiming that prostitutes were used to influence selection in the Delhi Ranji team and said the former player has a national responsibility to prove his claim.

"He owes a national responsibility to give us the full details," an agitated Jaitley said here on Tuesday.

"If he gives us the details, we will investigate the matter and will take the strictest action if it proved true," he said.

"But if he fails to give us the facts, it would be his own credibility that would be in danger," Jaitley said of Azad, who is also a BJP parliamentarian.

Azad sided with Virender Sehwag in the star player's fight against corruption in Delhi and District Cricket Association's Sports Committee and claimed the selection was so murky that even prostitutes were used to influence it.

Jaitley said Azad has levelled a serious charge and he would have to back it with evidence.

"This is a serious allegation and he just cannot pass the buck saying he heard it or read it somewhere," Jaitley said.
