MS Dhoni guilty of corrupt conduct, gave false statement in IPL case: prosecution

Harish Salve, one of the senior lawyers arguing the Justice Mudgal Committee report case before the Supreme Court, on Thursday claimed that India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is guilty of corrupt conduct because he gave false statements to the Mudgal Committee about Gurunath Meiyappan's role with the Chennai Super Kings.

"Dhoni is an employee of India Cements and that leads to a conflict of interest," Salve added. The prosecution has also called for Chennai franchise to be suspended in the light of the allegations against Dhoni.

Earlier, Srinivasan's defence was that Meiyappan was not the Team Principal but just a cricket enthusiast but the Mudgal committee demolished that argument by finding conclusive evidence to state Meiyappan was be integral part of the CSK franchise.
