New Delhi: May 23, 2013

IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla on Thursday said people should not “jump to conclusion” that BCCI supremo N Srinivasan‘s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan was allegedly involved in the current IPL spot-fixing scandal till the police complete their investigations.

“The Mumbai and Delhi Police are competent authorities and let them finish the investigations before jumping to any conclusions,” Shukla replied when asked whether Srinivasan should step down from the post of BCCI President accepting moral responsibility for the scandal.

“How can you term anyone guilty before the investigations are completed? Let the Police report be submitted and then we will be in a better position to talk further,” Shukla said.

The BCCI top brass have gone on the defensive regarding Gurunath’s alleged role in the whole fiasco.

BCCI’s joint secretary Anurag Thakur also spoke in the same vein stating that strong action will be taken against whoever is found guilty.

“BCCI has already taken the step on Day 1 by suspending the three players. We are waiting for the Delhi police and other state police to complete their probe and after that only we can take any decision,” Thakur stated.

“Let us wait, we all have faith in police department. Let the inquiry be over and I can ensure you on behalf of BCCI that strict action will be taken against the culprits. We have no idea who all are involved. Let Delhi police complete its probe. Let’s not pre-empt,” he said.
