Mumbai: The chargesheet by Mumbai Police in the IPL spot-fixing case names 22 accused including BCCI chief N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Vindoo Dara Singh. The chargesheet accessed by CNN-IBN does not mention any instance of spot-fixing in the IPL matches.
Sources say all 22 accused have been charged with cheating, gambling, conspiracy and forgery. The chargesheet says there is evidence of betting, based on certain transactions and audio conversations.
Sources also say evidence against Pakistani Asad Rauf who is accused in the case will not be detailed in this chargesheet. Pakistani bookies need to be identified while actual identities and further linkages need to be investigated, add sources.
Moreover, there is no BCCI official in the list of witnesses.
