IPL: ED questions KKR-owner Shah Rukh Khan

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan was on Saturday questioned by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the Indian Premier League.

Shah Rukh, who owns the Kolkata Knight Riders IPL team, was quizzed by the ED for over six hours.

Earlier, former cricketer Ravi Shastri and ex-BCCI chief Shashank Manohar were also questioned by the ED.

They were questioned in connection with the ED probe into the irregularities in the Indian Premier League.

"Shah Rukh appeared before us on Saturday and we recorded his statement in connection with IPL 2," an ED official said.

ED sources said that Khan had been asked to submit documents relating to the buying of players, advertising, profit and loss and share-holding pattern of his franchise to the agency in two weeks.

Indian Premier League season 2 was held in South Africa after the venue was shifted from India following security concerns.

There have been allegations of ill-gotten money flowing into the T-20 tournament from foreign tax heavens.
