Indian journalist Boria Majumdar has accused veteran Indian cricketer Wriddhiman Saha for "doctoring and tampering" screenshots of their messages and said that he will be serving him a defamation notice in connection with the recent allegations made by the cricketer. Saha did not name the journalist publicly, but on Saturday revealed that he told the BCCI every details pertaining to the episode.

"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 media after appearing before the a three-member investigating committee, comprising board vice-president Rajeev Shukla, treasurer Arun Dhumal and IPL governing council member Prabhtej Bhatia.

Later that evening, Majumdar took to Twitter to share a video claiming that Saha had "doctored" the WhatsApp screenshots that he had shared on Twitter.

"If he felt so anguished on that day, he could have put out the tweet on 13th, when the message was sent. It was a day of celebration for him as he got a bid of 2 crore. But he waited till the 19th, when he was dropped from the team, doctored the message, manipulated it and put it out in a manner at 10:12 in the night so as to garner public sympathy and play the perfect victim card," he said in the video. 

Earlier in February, on the day Saha was dropped from the Indian Test squad for the Sri Lanka series, he took to Twitter to share screenshots of messages sent by a "respected" journalist asking him to "to do an interview with me". On not responding, the reporter threatened the 37-year-old, saying, "You did not call. Never again will I interview you. I don't take insults kindly. And I will remember this. This wasn't something ypu should have done."
