Case against Lalit Modi: Police awaiting 'crucial' BCCI papers

"We have asked for two-three more crucial documents. They (BCCI) have promised to give it in three or four days. Once we receive these documents, we will go through it and take the investigation to the next level," Police Commissioner T Rajendran told reporters here.

Asked whether Modi would be summoned, Rajendran said, "He (Modi) is out of the country. Let's go through the documents first. Because the entire complaint is in three parts and various people are involved in it. We will prioritise and see who can be summoned first." BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan had last month lodged a police complaint against Modi alleging criminal misappropriation of funds to the tune of Rs 470 crore mainly in alloting media rights and free commercial rights.

In his first major interview since his exit from IPL, Modi had yesterday defended himself of any wrong doing and said his ouster as the IPL boss was part of a witch-hunt by people who are "jealous of his success".
