New Delhi: Feb 10, 2014

 

The anti-corruption units of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are “technically not qualified” to carry out indepth probe in betting and spot-fixing cases, a committee probing the scam Monday told the Indian Supreme Court urging it to get the matter investigated by a competent statutory agency.

 

“The Supreme Court may therefore consider directing a comprehensive investigation into the entire betting and match fixing episode in cricket and in particular in IPL by a competent statutory investigative agency with a view to identifying and prosecuting the criminals involved,” the committee said in its report.

 

“It has been brought on record that the anti-corruption unit of BCCI or the ICC anti-corruption and security unit are technically not qualified to make such investigation indepth,” the report said.

 

It further said that officials of both the units have “expressed helplessness” before the committee to do such probe in the absence of any legal mandate.

 

In the report, the committee said it has probed the roles of players of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals franchisee following allegations against them.

 

In its report, the three-member committee headed by former Punjab and Haryana Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal, also said that as per the allegations made before it, players of “another IPL team” were also involved in the spot fixing and it was being probed by the Pune Police.

 

“However, due to paucity of time, the committee could not probe into the aspect of the matter,” the report clarified.

 

It further said that as per the statement given before the Delhi Police by alleged bookie Chandresh Patel, a Hyderabad based prominent businessman, who is also a politician, was “actively involved in fixing of players” and had “attempted fixing of certain players of another team playing in IPL.”

 

“There has been entirely no investigation at any stage as regards the veracity of such claims/allegations. It is necessary to delve deep into the matter in as much as if allegations are found to be true after a proper investigation, drastic deterrent action can be taken,” it said.

 

“However, if the allegations are found to be untrue on any such proper investigation, the cloud of suspicion which has engulfed the game of cricket will stand dissipated,” it said.
