“If there is something murky happening behind the scenes, I am unaware about it and in that case, let law take its own course. However, people should not jump to conclusions. Till you are not proven guilty, you are not guilty,” she said. “We must not forget that it was Lalit who made IPL successful in the overseas market. We must give him that credit. It is all because of his effort that the game has become successful across the world,” she said.
Shilpa’s statement comes in the wake of recent media reports of an Income Tax department probe revealing that Modi holds a silent stake in three IPL teams - the Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab.
