Mumbai: Dec 7, 2013

 

The Mumbai Crime Branch chief on Saturday shared evidence against former Chennai Super Kings owner Gurunath Meiyappan, among others, with the Supreme Court-appointed panel probing the betting and spot-fixing case of this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL).

 

“Whatever information we had with us in the case has been shared with the committee which is expected to submit its report before the Supreme Court soon,” said a crime branch officer.

 

Joint Police Commissioner (crime branch) Himanshu Roy was accompanied by his deputy and Additional Police Commissioner Niket Kaushik and inspector Nandkumar Gopale.

 

This was Mumbai crime branch’s second round of meeting with the committee. Last time, they had met the panel on November 6 when Roy and his team had made a power-point presentation about their case and submitted the evidence they had gathered, particularly against BCCI chief N Srinivasan’s son-in-law Meiyappan, police said adding this was their last meeting.

 

The three-member panel is headed by former Punjab and Haryana High Court Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal. The committee, also comprising Additional Solicitor General L Nageshwar Rao and senior advocate Nilay Dutta, has been asked to investigate allegations of betting and spot-fixing in IPL matches against Meiyappan, some cricketers and owner of IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals (RR).

 

The SC appointed the committee after a petition was filed against the BCCI probe panel which exonerated Meiyappan and team owners but imposed varied bans on cricketers.

 

The committee is specifically focusing on the alleged roles of Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals team players in two IPL scandal cases registered by Mumbai and Delhi Police.

 

Meiyappan was chargesheeted in September 21 along with actor Vindoo Dara Singh and 20 others by Mumbai police in the IPL betting case, four months after the scandal had rocked the cricketing world. They have been charged with forgery, cheating and criminal conspiracy, among others.

 

Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf and 15 alleged bookies from the neighbouring country have been named as “wanted accused” in the 11,500-page chargesheet filed in a Mumbai Court.

 

The Crime Branch also shared the charge sheet copy with the panel, besides the telephonic conversations between Vindoo and Meiyappan which allegedly showed the two were involved in betting, the sources said.
