Tamil Nadu military officer seeks powerful IPL probe


Alleged suspects in a IPL spot-fixing box are brought to a justice in Delhi, IPL 2013, Delhi, May 16, 2013

An doubt officer in a IPL spot-fixing liaison who had deposed before a Mudgal Committee has called for a whole box to be rubbed by one nodal force, like a National Investigation Agency, instead of several eccentric units as is now a situation. G Sampath Kumar, a Tamil Nadu-based military officer who had seemed before a Justice Mudgal Committee, pronounced a regulating charges were not being scrupulously investigated since of a diffused inlet of a process.

“The categorical thing that we wanted to highlight before a Mudgal Committee too… we asked for an review by an group like a NIA along with a corner review team. we had a feeling that this review was not [moving] on a right lines since a really FIR [filed by a Delhi military during a time of arresting Sreesanth and dual other cricketers] mentions match-fixing. It’s in a FIR itself though it was not probed properly,” Kumar told a TV channel Headlines Today.

Various strands of purported crime in a IPL are being exclusively investigated by opposite state military units. While a Delhi Police focuses on a players’ involvement, that led to a arrests of 3 Rajasthan Royals cricketers, a Mumbai Police box is against Gurunath Meiyappan and his tie with purported actor-bookie Vindoo Dara Singh. Police teams from Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Rajasthan have also chipped in during several points, focusing on a income route and betting exchange between a high-profile bookies.

Kumar was a superintendent of military with a Crime Branch CID (internal security) in Chennai, operative on a box involving feign passports when he came opposite information relating to betting. He pronounced he had sought a some-more minute review of this angle though was taken off a doubt group and posted to a Railway military in Trichy, a provincial city 300 km south of Chennai.

Kumar told a channel he believed he was being framed: “They wanted me not to examine serve on this. My prove is that when we in Q bend [the inner confidence unit] moment down so many things, because haven’t they finished that? That’s my question.”

He seemed before a Mudgal Committee, whose report to a Supreme Court pronounced a charges opposite Gurunath, a son-in-law of BCCI boss N Srinivasan, of being concerned in betting and flitting on information on IPL games stand proved.

While doubt a feign pass racket, Kumar had interrogated Uttam Jain, alias Kitty, a bookie who claimed to have believe about regulating of IPL games, generally a joining compare between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals on May 12, 2013. According to Kumar’s deposition before a Mudgal Committee, Kitty had suggested how Vikram Agarwal, a Chennai hotelier who was arrested on a assign of being a bookie, knew Gurunath along with a few tip cricketers.

Kumar also pronounced that Kitty had suggested that a May 12 IPL compare was fixed. The Mudgal news pronounced there “seems to be adequate information accessible on record to prove that a serve review is compulsory in honour of a match.”

“It was settled that Vikram Agarwal told him (Kitty) that there was traffic for match-fixing between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings and Meiyappan has to promulgate to Chennai Super Kings (players) for finalisation. Later Kitty came to know that they were formulation to repair a compare between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings scheduled on 12.05.2013. Again on 27.04.2013 also after a cooking party, traffic was on and Vikram Agarwal sensitive to Kitty some understanding was worked out. Later, after a cooking celebration Meiyappan sensitive that Chennai Super Kings has concluded to play as per devise and his group will measure 140 runs and this was communicated to somebody (Sanjay) in Jaipur over phone by Vikram Agarwal when Kitty was nearby,” Kumar pronounced in his sealed report. Kumar pronounced that other officers connected to both cases were also eliminated within a brief time and a record of their investigations was not given to a examine panel, a fact reliable by Nilay Dutta, in his news to a Supreme Court.

In his talk to Headlines Today, Kumar wondered why, when Kitty gave adult so most information in 4 hours’ doubt in a Q -branch office, was he not taken into control for a longer period.
