Indian police said they have so far found no evidence that the father of a child star in the Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire" tried to sell the 9-year-old girl to an undercover reporter. Police opened an investigation following a complaint from Khurshid Begum, the estranged mother of "Slumdog Millionaire" star Rubina Ali, after News of the World reported the father planned to put her up for adoption. The British newspaper said the deal was allegedly offered to one of its reporters posing as a sheik from the Mideast. But officers said Wednesday so far they found nothing to back the claim of the British tabloid that the father, Rafiq Qureshi, offered to give up Ali for adoption in exchange for some $400,000. "We have interrogated Rubina's father at length and have not found any evidence against him indicating that he was trying to sell Rubina," said senior police officer Nishar Tamboli.
