Reacting to the sensational arrest of Indian paceman S Sreesanth and two of his Rajasthan Royals teammates -- Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila -- Shukla said that the development has come as a shock for the organisers.

The three Rajasthan Royals players were arrested by the Delhi police in Mumbai early yesterday on charges of spot-fixing, throwing the IPL into its biggest ever crisis till date. 11 bookies in Mumbai and Delhi were also arrested in connection with the same case.

"We have called an emergency Working Committee meeting in Chennai on Sunday. We will discuss the entire issue before deciding the future course of action," Shukla told PTI.

"We will be taking some important decisions. The strongest possible action will be taken against the guilty. Whoever is found to be involved in spot-fixing, will not be spared," he said.

He said the BCCI`s anti-corruption unit, headed by Ravi Sawani, has been asked to investigate the matter and submit its report.

"If we have Sawani`s preliminary report by Sunday, we will go through it and discuss it," he said.

Shukla said the IPL Governing Council will try its best to keep the tournament clean and ensure that it`s image does not take a further beating.

The IPL Chairman also thanked the Delhi police for unearthing the spot-fixing scandal.
