BCCI today strongly refuted charges that all its activities are being kept away from the public eye, that it enjoyed tax exemption and that its affairs are being conducted illegally to the detriment of public interest and sought to dismiss a PIL seeking a direction to Ministry of Youth and Sports Affairs to take over the body and IPL.

Countering the allegations on a PIL filed by advocate V Sankarakumaresan, BCCI Honorary Secretary S Sanjay Patel said the PIL relied purely on news reports and as such without any specific detail which would suggest genuine cause of action.

On complaints against the IPL season, he said BCCI had taken action 'without fear or favour' against individuals concerned. Three cricketers were arrested on charges of spot- fixing and had been suspended from all cricketing activities. Complaint had been received with regard to a team owner who reportedly admitted to having betted on IPL matches.

He said two sets of disciplinary proceedings are currently on. As per rule 32(II)of BCCI rules and Regulations, a Commissioner has been appointed to give a report on spot- fixing charges against players arrested by Delhi Police in Mumbai.
