The Mumbai Police is likely to file its chargesheet against N Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan for his involvement in betting during the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL). Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf is also likely to be named in the chargesheet.
 
According to an NDTV report, the Mumbai Police has claimed that it has clinching evidence against Meiyappan which included transcripts of his call records, documents used to secure sim cards for bookies and CCTV footage. However, the police haven’t found any concrete evidence to nail Meiyappan for match-fixing.
 
Meiyappan was arrested on May 25 on the basis of a confession by Vindoo Dara Singh. The duo was held in police custody till June 4 after which they were released on bail. Vindoo had also revealed that umpire Rauf had received expensive gifts from bookies for his birthday.
 
The filing of the chargesheet comes over a week after S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan were handed life bans for their involvement in spot-fixing.
