Mudgal panel gives clean chit to Srinivasan, nails Meiyappan

The Supreme Court appointed Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee, which investigated the allegations of spot fixing and betting in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), has given a clean chit to sidelined BCCI president N. Srinivasan on both counts.

However, the Mudgal report says that Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) officials were aware of Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan's activities but they did not act on it.

While exonerating Meiyappan of spot-fixing charges, the committee said that he was involved in betting.

The committee also says that the then owner of Rajasthan Royals Raj Kundra was in contact with bookies.
