Delhi police to re-examine cheating evidence in IPL matches

Delhi police are to look towards Mumbai in order to challenge the verdict of the Delhi courts of spot fixing charges in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The verdict exonerated all accused including suspended India paceman Sreesanth, of spot-fixing in the 2013 season of the Indian Premier League.
A cheating case filed by an activist Naresh Makani is already being investigated in Mumbai.
Kailash Bisht, the Delhi investigation police officer said: “Within 30 days of the verdict we have to challenge this order.”
“The offence of cheating is also not made out prima facie, even if the entire evidence of prosecution is admitted without formal proof,” the additional sessions judge, Ms. Neena Bansal Krishna of the court, has said in its verdict.
“I filed a cheating case against the BCCI and six others for cheating of public money by way of existence of betting and spot-fixing during the IPL-6 season,” confirmed Naresh Makani over telephone from Mumbai. “The case filed in Killa Court in Mumbai, is running slow but steady and the next date of hearing is on August 24. I wonder why both-Mumbai police and Delhi police-have not handled this case in proper co-ordination”.
Naresh Makani’s complaint which was also filed with Mumbai police against BCCI, includes N. Srinivasan, Sanjay Jagdale, Anurag Thakur (who were BCCI president, secretary and joint secretary then), Rajeev Shukla, Arun Jaitley, Gurunath Meiyappan and others as accused and deprived him of “fair play” in the IPL-6 under Indian Penal Codes-420, 120-B, 109 R/W and 34.
Besides being an activist and a social worker, Naresh Makani is a Tax Consultant in Mumbai.
