The Delhi Police spoke to former Indian cricket board secretary Sanjay Jagdale yesterday to understand the revenue model of the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament in connection with the spot-fixing scam they are probing, official sources said.
“We called Jagdale here to get an idea about BCCI’s role in the agreement between team Rajasthan Royals, the board and the cricketers as the agreement is a tripartite one,” sources said.
Delhi Police have also called IPL CEO Sundar Raman, along with Jagdale, as part of their information-gathering effort.
Rajasthan Royals had filed a complaint against its three arrested players — S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan — for breach of contract, as they were allegedly involved in spot-fixing in the just concluded IPL.
“He was not called for questioning. We wanted to understand certain things,” a police officer said. “During the talks for information on the tripartite agreement, Jagdale and Raman were confronted with each other. Delhi Police officers talked to them for around two-and-a-half hours,” he said.
“As it was an information gathering session, Jagdale and Raman were not ready to come to Delhi Police Special Cell office. They agreed to come to the hotel,” the officer added.
