Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma hopes the guilty get a tough punishment in IPL betting case

Even as the verdict by the former Chief Justice of India RM Lodha-led committee on betting in the Indian Premier League is awaited, Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma, who is also the petitioner in the case, has expressed satisfaction over the investigation and wants a tough punishment for those found guilty.

When justice (retired) Lodha and the two other panel members Ashok Bhan and RV Raveendran, both retired judges, deliver their verdict on Tuesday afternoon, Aditya Verma will be a relieved man as he has been trying to expose the racket for the past several months.

"After investigations lasting 170 days, finally the verdict of Justice Lodha committee is to be rendered on Tuesday, June 14 at1 pm in Delhi. Being a petitioner in the IPL case, I am fully satisfied with the investigation of the committee of three former Supreme Court judges under the chairman of former CJI Justice RM Lodha which was constituted by apex court," he said.

The verdict will decide the fate of IPL teams Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals along with their team officials Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra, who have been accused of betting during season six of the IPL.

"The quantum of punishment to be imposed on Mr Kundra, Mr Meiyappan as also their respective franchises/teams/owners of the team shall be determined by the committee. The order passed by the committee shall be final and binding upon BCCI and the parties concerned subject to the right of the aggrieved party seeking redress in appropriate judicial proceedings in accordance with law. The three-member committee shall also examine the role of Sunder Raman (former IPL COO) with or without further investigation, into his activities, and if found guilty, impose a suitable punishment upon him on behalf of BCCI," said Verma.

"I hope the quantum of punishment by the committee will be a milestone in the history of BCCI. It will be a lesson to corrupt officials, players and those who indulge in conflict of interest in any sports association. Lastly I can say that truth always wins and nobody is above law," he added.
