IPL scandal: Srinivasan, Meiyappan appear before Mudgal Committee

Chennai: BCCI President N Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan have appeared before the Justice Mudgal Committee in connection with the probe into the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal.

It is learnt that former Chennai Super Kings Team Principal Meiyappan handed over a letter to the committee, exercising his right to remain silent.

A criminal case is being heard against Meiyappan in the Bombay High Court.

The committee has also questioned former India captain Kris Srikkanth and IPL chief executive Sundar Raman and will meet BCCI's anti-corruption unit chief Ravi Sawani among others over the next few days.

So far, the three-man committee has questioned a number of people, including the three Rajasthan Royals players -- S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Sidhharth Trivedi, while they have also met with the officials of Delhi and Mumbai police.

The probe committee's brief covers the corruption charges against Meiyappan, CSK team owners India Cements, and Rajasthan Royals team owners Jaipur IPL Cricket Private Ltd, as well as a larger mandate of allegations around betting and spot fixing on IPL matches and the involvement of players.

Former India pacer S Sreesanth, Chandila and Ankeet Chavan, besides 26 others, were arrested in May following investigations by the Police into the scandal.

Sreesanth and Chavan were handed life bans by the BCCI while Trivedi got a one-year ban.
