IPL spot-fixing: Meiyappan's voice sample confirmed
Friday 24 October 2014

According to a report, the Forensic Science Lab in Mumbai has identified the voice of Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of N Srinivasan, in a tapped phone conversation, thereby confirming his involvement in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing scandal. A Times Now report has also confirmed the involvement of other bookies in the betting scam.

Meiyappan was allegedly the person involved in betting in Tamil Nadu. In February, a committee probing corruption in IPL said that the "allegations of betting and passing information" against Meiyappan "stand proved".

The report, based on the information provided by the Delhi and Mumbai police and comprising the FIR and chargesheet filed by Mumbai police and, transcripts of telephonic conversations, had said that "Meiyappan was indulging in betting through Vindu Dara Singh who was in direct touch with the bookies and punters like Mr Vikram Aggarwal".

"Bets placed by Mr Meiyappan inter alia were not only in favour of CSK but also against it. Meiyappan also bet on teams in matches of teams other than CSK," the report had said.
