The BCCI on Sunday suspended its President N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan from any involvement in cricket or in IPL team Chennai Super Kings pending further inquiry in the betting case. In a statement, the apex cricketing body said it has taken note of the detention by the Mumbai Police of Meiyappan, who is a member of the team management of Chennai Super Kings.
"BCCI officials met with officers from the Mumbai police on the evening of May 23, and will continue to offer all assistance to the police and regulatory authorities," it said in the statement. A Meanwhile, BCCI chief Srinivasan, who is under pressure to resign even since Meiyappan was arrested, has rejected requests by BCCI members to step down.
Former BCCI president Shashank Manohar on Sunday urged the BCCI to hand over the investigations into the IPL spot-fixing scandal to a central investigative agency which will probe all the matches of the cash-rich league.
"BCCI must come clean in wake of the recent spot-fixing scandal. They must cleanse the system completely and a central investigative agency must look into the aspect during any or every tournament including international fixtures," Manohar said in an interview to a news channel on Sunday.
