A Supreme Court panel, inquiring into the IPL spot fixing scam, has come down heavily on Mumbai police for "not willing" to investigate involvement of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in it and for protecting "lots of persons" involved in the betting syndicate.
The Mumbai Crime Branch chief today shared evidence against former Chennai Super Kings owner Gurunath Meiyappan, among others, with the Supreme Court-appointed panel probing the betting and spot-fixing case of this year`s Indian Premier League (IPL).
Mumbai Police will "very soon" file a charge sheet in connection with the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting scandal case naming, among others, Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan, Bollywood actor Vindoo Singh and Pakistani umpire Asad Rauf in the case.
Pakistan`s Asad Rauf, who is being investigated in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, and long-serving New Zealander Billy Bowden were today dropped from the ICC Elite Panel of Umpires after an annual review of their performance.
With Asad Rauf allegedly under scanner in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is planning to bind its umpires under contractual obligations to make them answerable for their assignments and activities.
