Former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi today questioned the jurisdiction of Chennai Police to entertain the criminal complaint filed by the BCCI, accusing him of financial irregularities in the IPL.
In a statement issued by his lawyer Mehmood Abdi, Modi said he has not seen a copy of such a complaint and was not in a position to comment on it but went on to question the jurisdiction of Chennai police to register an FIR.
"We have not seen a copy of the complaint. Therefore we are not in a position to comment upon the same except the following: Does the Chennai Police have the territorial jurisdiction to entertain such a complaint and register an FIR and investigate the matter?" Modi has questioned through his lawyer.
