India seek IOC help

India has sought inputs from International Olympic Committee (IOC) to finetune its proposed comprehensive legislation on prevention of “match and spot fixing” in the backdrop of such allegations in cricket. 

In a letter to IOC Director General Christophe De Kepper, Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Jitendra Singh requested:  “Ethics have become even more important in the current context in India. Of late, there has been a spate of incidents which amount to “match/spot fixing” in the game of cricket. This has led to increased demand for greater regulation.”
