"So far there is no evidence of any offense, hence there is no registration of complaint and no arrest," Nisar Tamboli, a senior police officer, informed Reuters.
Qureshi, 36, told PEOPLE that a British newspaper story that he was prepared to place his 9-year-old up for adoption for $300,000 was a "lie made up by foreign journalists playing games with me."
The family, already aided by the producers of the Oscar-winning Slumdog, said they were willing to accept additional financial help, although Rubina's education was being sponsored by a trust from the Arab emirate of Qatar.
