Kolkata: A day after the International Cricket Council (ICC) letter to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) about Anurag Thakur socializing with an alleged bookie was made public, the BJP MP lashed out at N Srinivasan in a public letter and asked BCCI to issue a list of suspected bookies.
In the letter he shared on social media site Twitter, Thakur said that he knew Karan Gilhotra, as he was active in the political and cricketing activities in Punjab.
“I have earlier been the Joint Secretary of the BCCI under your President-ship and I am now Secretary, BCCI. I only wish that you had shared the list of unverified suspected bookies with me and other colleagues, so that we could identify such persons and keep away from them. I have known this person, who has been active in the political and cricketing activities in Punjab and adjacent States. I had no knowledge or any clue about his activities as a suspected bookie,” the letter said.
