Court orders probe against BCCI officials
Wednesday 24 December 2014

Mumbai's Metropolitan Magistrate court has ordered the crime branch to file a report in the criminal case filed by Naresh Makani, an honorary life member of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association, against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president-in-exile N Srinivasan, former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale, Joint Honorary Secretary Anurag Thakur, former IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla, former BCCI vice-president and current finance minister Arun Jaitely, and former Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan.

According to Mr Makani, "The public at large had been cheated by being invited to watch fixed cricket matches, so action should be taken against all office bearers and team owners involved. IPL matches were not arranged as sporting events but events to wrongfully earn money."

Mr Makani said that while the Committee headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal, crime branch and Marine Drive police had already recorded his statements, the court had once again asked him to give his statement to the investigating agency.

Mr Makani said that the Magistrate had directed the crime branch to investigate the matter and file their report on January 5, 2015.
