A team of officers with the Mumbai Police Crime Branch, including Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Himanshu Roy, met the Supreme Court-appointed committee probing the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting-fixing racket Saturday.
The committee, which was appointed by the apex court after the Cricket Association of Bihar filed a petition against the BCCI’s absolution of Gurunath Meiyappan and CSK team owners in the scam.
The committee is specifically focusing on the allegations against Meiyappan as well as against players of the Rajasthan Royals.
On Saturday morning, Roy, along with Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) Niket Kaushik, inspector Nandkumar Gopale and sub-inspector Laxmikant Salunke with the Property Cell, met the committee in Colaba.
The meeting lasted for an hour-and-a-half and sources said that Gopale was quizzed at length about the evidence that the Crime Branch had submitted to the committee during their first meeting in November.
“The committee has been taking follow-up meetings with all parties concerned before winding up its probe,” said a Crime Branch officer.
