KARACHI: Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of Board for Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Chairman Narayanswami Srinivasan, was indicted for corruption and spot fixing claims in the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Monday, ARY News reports from Karachi.
Supreme Court of India had formed a committee to probe spot-fixing and betting allegations in the Indian Premier League last year. The committee had submitted the report of the investigation in the apex court earlier.
The corruption scam in IPL-6 had rocked BCCI. The Indian cricket board had imposed a life ban of cricket on Santhakumaran Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan of Rajasthan Royals.
It should be noted that "Big-3" proposal was accepted in the International Cricket Council (ICC) last Saturday due to which Srinivasan will be made ICC Chairman in June.
