Hanky-Panky in Karnataka League: BCCI ACU
Neeraj Kumar oversaw the high-profile investigations of the match-fixing saga of 2000 and IPL spot-fixing case of 2013
BCCI's anti-corruption consultant Neeraj Kumar believes that corruption in the game still exists, especially in the lower level leagues and state-run T20 cricket tournament across the world. However, when it comes to the Indian national team, the retired IPL officer believes that match-fixing is non-existent.
The former Delhi police commissioner singled out the Karnataka Premier League, as according to him, 'there is a lot of hanky panky going on on there'.
"Now having joined the BCCI, I see so much of it happening. Fortunately, I can say with some amount of authority and conviction that our national team at this point of time is above board. But in the second rung and third rung, the B tiers and C tiers, the premier leagues, including the Karnataka Premier League a lot of hanky panky goes on," Neeraj was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.
"There is corruption even now. There is more corruption in some parts of the world – Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and in tier B and C cities in local tournaments. In the 2015 IPL, there was some "hanky panky" but it was stopped and a whole racket was busted after players reported that they were approached by bookies," he said.
The head of BCCI's ACU also revealed that they stumbled upon some evidence of match-fixing in the game when they were keeping a check upon other activities that were linked to the underworld.
