Chennai: The city police on Tuesday summoned suspended IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi and six others for questioning in the first week of January in connection with a case of alleged misappropriation of funds, filed by BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan.
Besides Modi, others summoned by the Central Crime Branch Police are Kunal Dasgupta, Venu Nair, Andrew Georgio, Seamus O`brien, Harish Krishnamachar and Ajay Verma, a senior police official said.
"They have been summoned under CrPC sections 91 (to produce documents or other things) and 160 (power to require attendance of witnesses)," a senior police official said.
Srinivasan had lodged a complaint against Modi charging him with misappropriation of Rs 470 crore, mainly in allotting media rights and free commercial rights.
The CCB had registered a case in October against Modi and others under different sections including criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust, falsification of accounts and cheating.
As part of its probe, the police had sought details from the Board of Control for Cricket in India on the series of meetings between BCCI and IPL and its minutes.
