Cops likely to chargesheet Meiyappan today
With the police expected to file a chargesheet in the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting scam today, Chennai Super Kings' Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of BCCI president N Srinivasan, is likely to be charged for betting and gambling.
Though the sources claimed there was no match-fixing evidence against Meiyappan, the police say they have incriminating evidence against Meiyappan, including call records, CCTV footage and documents used to obtain SIM cards for bookies and were likely to charge him.
Even Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf is likely to be named in the chargesheet.
The match-fixing scam came to the fore in May after Rajasthan Royals players Shantakumaran Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested by the Delhi Police.
