New Delhi: Former BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel yesterday said in his defence that UK-based company ‘Page Protection Services’, hired by the previous dispensation, “did not snoop on any board official” during his time in office.
The BCCI has sent a letter to Patel asking him to clarify about the USD 900,000 payment made to the company for allegedly carrying out 24x7 surveillance on some of the key Board officials. This happened when N Srinivasan was calling the shots in BCCI.
"I had deactivated my BCCI email account, the very day after I relinquished office (last March). I have sought for the MoU from the BCCI since I don’t have any documents with me. Once they give me that, I will file my reply. But I am putting this on record, no such instruction was given to the company regarding snooping on individuals," Patel told .
