Chairman of International Cricket Council and former President of Board of Control for Cricket in India, Narayanaswami Srinivasan is in the centre of controversy again. The man who has been frequently faced with many allegations this time may face an accusation of spying his own colleagues and that with the money of the cricket board, reports NDTV. Srinivasan allegedly paid Rs 14 crores of BCCI’s money to a London-based private agency to spy on other BCCI members, tapping their phones and tracking their e-mails in the process.
Sources confirmed NDTV that a committee headed by Anurag Thakur, the secretary of BCCI is expected to make an official inquiry and investigation.
The investigation will try to find how and why the former boss spied on his own colleagues of BCCI and how he was authorised to spend the board money for these functions.
Srinivasan may also have to face some other accusations as Chennai Super Kings, one of the franchises of Indian Premier League with which he is involved valued their team worth only RS 5 lakh. That sum seems extremely undervalued presumably for tax evasion.
These matters will be in the agenda of the BCCI’s first working committee meeting under new chief Jagmohan Dalmiya at Kolkata.
Srinivasan has hit the headlines with many issues regarding corruption on numerous times. He was warned and punished by Indian high court.
During the recent World Cup he deprived the then ICC president AHM Mustafa Kamal his constitutional right od giving away the trophy to champion team.
Kamal, the former boss of Bangladesh cricket board resigned from the post of ICC president protesting the issue and that shook the cricketing world. ICC is yet to appoint a new president since Kamal’s resignation.
