Charges against Gurunath proved - IPL probe report
Gurunath Meiyappan, the son-in-law of BCCI president N Srinivasan, has been proved to have indulged in betting and passing on information, as alleged, and is deemed to be a team official by the IPL probe committee, led by Justice Mukul Mudgal.
The 170-page report, submitted to the Supreme Court today also said "the material on record clearly indicates that Gurunath was the face of Chennai Super Kings and the team official of CSK".
The report also said the fact that Raj Kundra, the Rajasthan Royals team owner, had "resorted to betting" through Umesh Goenka in the IPL is "evident" from the statements of Goenka recorded by the Delhi court.
However, it said that "further and serious investigations" on the basis of the Goenka statements were required.
