IPL commissioner Rajeev Shukla said the tainted cricketers will be given tough punishment in case they are found guilty in the recent spot-fixing scandal.

"Strongest possible action will be taken, that is what BCCI President has said. And that is the view of the working committee," Shukla told reporters.

Addressing a press conference after an emergent meeting in Chennai, BCCI President N Srinivasan promised to take strongest possible action against the Rajasthan Royals players if they are found guilty in the scandal that has hit the cash-rich T20 league.

Shukla further said: "Secondly, it has also been decided after talking to RR representative, that RR will file a complaint against these players because they are being contracted with RR."
