NEW DELHI – The Supreme Court of India clears Narayanaswami Srinivasan from corruption charges and ultimately paves his way to come back as a head of sports in India.
Supreme Court appointed panel was looking into the scandals from last year in the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL). The panel headed by former judge Mukul Mudgal.
Panel’s report said that “This individual was not involved in match-fixing activities. This individual was not involved in scuttling investigations into match-fixing.”
After this report Srinivasan may resume his position as head of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which was scheduled to hold elections later this month.
Narayanaswami Srinivasan is considered the most power man in cricket world.
The Super Kings are owned by India Cements, whose managing director is Srinivasan, while the team is captained by India skipper Mahendra Dhoni.
The sixth IPL season last year was mired in controversy after police launched legal proceedings against several IPL officials and cricketers, including former Test fast bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, for illegal betting and spot-fixing.
