BCCI yet to approach ministry for IPL probe

The Home Ministry on Thursday said it has not received any request from the BCCI or any other quarters to probe the conduct of all the 75 IPL matches in the wake of spot-fixing and betting allegations. "We are yet to receive a request from the BCCI or any other relevant quarters for a probe in the IPL matters," Union Home Secretary R K Singh told reporters here. His comments came in response to a question on Agriculture Minister and former BCCI President Sharad Pawar's demand for a Home Ministry probe into all the 75 matches of the IPL. "Let the request come to us and we will consider it. Till then it is completely hypothetical," Singh said. Endorsing the suggestion of his successor Shashank Manohar for a government probe into all the IPL matches played this season, Pawar said, "If the BCCI gives in writing to the Home Minister and request to investigate all the matches, the government can then investigate all the matches. They can interrogate anybody. They have legal sanction. That is why Manohar's suggestion is useful and effective, and the board should accept it." "If the board does not accept it and says its own anti-corruption will do the job, I feel the board is not serious in dealing with the wrongdoings," he added.
