Mumbai court orders for report in criminal case against BCCI bigwigs
Mumbai's Metropolitan Magistrate court yesterday ordered the crime branch to file a report in the criminal case filed by Naresh Makani, an honorary life member of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association, against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president-in-exile N Srinivasan, former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale, Joint Honorary Secretary Anurag Thakur, former IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla, former BCCI vice-president and current finance minister Arun Jaitely and former Chennai Super Kings official Gurunath Meiyappan.
This is the only criminal case lodged in the IPL-6 spot fixing saga which is currently being heard in the Supreme Court. Makani had filed the case three days after the scam-hit IPL-6 was completed (on May 29, 2013).
“The court had asked the police to file the report on September 2, 2013, but nothing happened. The court has now told the crime branch to file its report by January 5, 2014,” Makani said.
