Controversial Bollywood personality, Vindoo Dara Singh, has made some more revelations on the betting and fixing scandal in the Indian Premier League during a sting operation carried out by a Zee News reporter.
Vindoo, who is the central figure in the IPL betting case investigated by the Mumbai Police, said a couple of more teams were involved in betting and fixing. He also cast aspersions on a star India player.
However, he said former India pacer Sreesanth was wrongly indicted in the scandal and banned by the BCCI.
“All these allegations against Sreesanth are rubbish, fraud; I will say he is 100% not guilty,” Vindoo was seen as saying.
The TV channel and website, however, ran a disclaimer with the news: “It neither subscribes nor takes responsibility for the authenticity of the claims made in the conversation.”
Justice Mukul Mudgal, who headed the Supreme Court-appointed committee investigating into cricket fixing, told in an interview to the same news channel that there should be coordination between police, the anti-corruption unit and the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India).
“The Mumbai and Delhi Police have done very good investigation,” said Mudgal.
Calling himself a cricket lover, Mugdal called for fans to keep faith in the game, saying the sport shouldn’t suffer due to the actions of a couple of individuals.
Mudgal said he would be watching the seventh Indian Premier League, though he admitted, “Some doubt will be there (in his mind). Everyone will have it.”
