Voice samples of Meiyappan confirmed

In a fresh twist into the IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal, the voice samples of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team principal Gurunath Meiyappan, the son-in-law of former BCCI chief N Srinivasan, has been confirmed.

Meiyappan was heard speaking to Vindoo Dara Singh, the son of late wrestler-turned-actor Dara Singh.

Meiyappan and Vindoo were arrested last year by the crime branch-CID of Mumbai Police after the IPL scandal broke. Several bookies, punters, financiers and hawala operators arrested by the police are currently on bail. All of them have been charge-sheeted by the Mumbai Police.

Central Forensic Science Laboratory confirmed the voice samples of Meiyappan and Vindoo sent to them. 

The scandal broke during the 2013 IPL, with Delhi Police arresting three Rajasthan Royals cricketers – S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan – in a midnight raid in Mumbai.

The Mumbai Police also unearthed betting links after they arrested Meiyappan and Vindoo. Justice Mukul Mudgal-led committee is expected to give its full report to the Supreme Court  in the next few weeks.
