IPL spot-fixing: Meiyappan’s phone recovered from yacht
Zee Media Bureau
Chennai: Mumbai Police have claimed that they have recovered Gurunath Meiyappan’s phone from his yacht moored at Marina Bay, Chennai.
The police are still looking for three more phones that Gurunath allegedly used for placing bets.
Earlier in the week, India Cements had claimed that Gurnuath is neither the owner, team Principal or CEO of Chennai Super Kings. He had been said to be only an honorary member of the board.
However, an e-mail sent by IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla on December 24, 2011 to all team owners mentions Gurunath`s name as one of the recipients.
Business cards recovered during the course of the raid at his residence showed Gurunath Meiyappan was in fact the owner and team Principal of the Chennai Super Kings.
Meanwhile, some reports suggest that the other three cell phones have also been recovered.
The recovery of the mobile phone from his yacht will make it more difficult for the son-in-law of the BCCI chief to claim innocence in the spot-fixing case.
