New Delhi: Highlighting the problem of match-fixing which had rocked Indian cricket in 2000 with the former captain Mohd Azharuddin's name cropping up, a court here on Saturday expressed anguish that "no laws have been enacted till date to cover these situations."

"It may be worth the while to mention here that a similar situation in regard to fixing of players had arisen in the year 2000 vis-a-vis the famous players Azharuddin and others.

"A preliminary inquiry was conducted by CBI but it was reported that no offence under the penal statute of India was made out against these players who had indulged in session/match-fixing.

"Despite being aware of the situation, no laws have been enacted till date to cover these situations," Additional Sessions Judge Neena Bansal Krishna said.
