Rafiq Qureshi likely danced in celebration Wednesday after police in India said there was no evidence he tried to sell his daughter, 9-year-old Slumdog Millionaire star Rubina Ali, for $290,000.

"So far there is no evidence of any offense," Nisar Tamboli, a senior police officer, told Reuters Wednesday. "Hence, there is no registration of complaint and no arrest."

As previously reported, the allegation -- originally made by a British publication -- enraged the girl's birth mother, who fought on streets of Mumbai Monday with Quershi's wife over the controversy.
