New Delhi: According to a report in the Indian Express, the BCCI on Thursday decided to refer the issue of former commissioner having 'beneficial interest' in three IPL franchises to its legal department.
Though not all IPL governing council members were in favor of acting on the matter that was reported by a newspaper, BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur was in favor of handing it over to the legal committee and the ACU.
The working committee of the board could discuss this matter in the Kolkata meeting.
Family emails purportedly linked to Modi referred to his alleged “beneficial interest” in three franchises of the cash-rich league, had been reported by the newspaper earlier.
A draft trust deed in the form of a “letter agreement”, included in a fresh set of emails purportedly linked to Modi, referred to his alleged “beneficial interest” in three IPL teams.
The May 19, 2015 email was from Australia-based attorney Dean Kino to Lalit and his brother Samir Modi.
When contacted, Kino acknowledged the email and said: “… the potential cricket interests of Lalit were based on guess work rather than facts.”
