The highly anticipated cricket World Cup, scheduled to start on October 15th, is just around the corner.
The players of the Pakistan cricket team have arrived in India after obtaining their visas, albeit with some delays.
Now, according to viral social media rumors, India has reportedly denied visa requests from well-known Pakistani YouTubers and social media influencers.
The rumors alleged that the Indian government had rejected visa requests from Momin Saqib, Ducky Bhai, and Nadir Ali.
However, it has been revealed that these rumors are untrue. Ducky Bhai and Momin Saqib used their social media accounts to clarify the situation.
“There are some rumors circulating that I applied for an Indian visa for ICC World Cup 2023 and it got rejected,” wrote Ducky on his X account.
He clarified that the news is false, stating that he had never applied for an Indian visa. He urged netizens to verify news before sharing or believing it.
There are some rumors circulating that I applied for an Indian visa for ICC World Cup 2023 and it got rejected. Please know this is completely FAKE news. I never applied for any visa related to this event. Always check the facts before believing and spreading any news. 🙏

There's news circulating that my Indian visa got rejected. Just to clear the air, I haven't even applied yet!
