Sundar Raman waiting for Investigating officer’s report


New Delhi: In the wake of the Supreme Court-appointed Justice R.M Lodha committee’s landmark verdict on the Indian Premier League spot-fixing case, Sundar Raman, the Chief Operating Officer of the IPL, has said that he is awaiting the investigating officer’s report on the same.

“The Lodha panel, at the time of pronouncing the order, made it clear that because of change in the investigating officer the report of investigating officer Mr. Priyadarshi is still not submitted, I will wait as per what has been given as time line to them.,” said 43-year-old Raman, who is also accused of wrongdoing.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court had appointed CBI superintendent of police Vivek Priyadarshi to head the investigating team that is assisting former chief justice RM Lodha in determining the role of BCCI official Sunder Raman in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) betting and spot fixing scam.

In a sensational verdict, the three-member Supreme Court appointed committee found Chennai Super Kings (CSK) official Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals (RR) co-owner Raj Kundra guilty, and imposed life suspensions on the duo.

The committee also suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals from participating in the IPL for a period of two years.
