Look Out circular against Lalit Modi
Mumbai, Oct 15 : A Look Out circular has been issued to all Indian airports against sacked Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Lalit Modi, media reports said on Friday.Earlier on Oct 7, a blue alert, which bans travel completely, has been issued against Lalit Modi by the Enforcement Directorate.
The ED's Mumbai wing issued the blue corner notice with effect from Oct 1 for his alleged involvement in Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) violations, reports in media said.
The alert means he can be intercepted and checked thoroughly before any foreign travel and can be detained in any port of embarkation and disembarkation.
Modi, facing charges of Income Tax fraud as the IPL commissioner and chairman, is hounded by the Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) and its disciplinary action committee.
The alert was issued after Modi failed to turn up before the ED for interrogation.
Last month Lalit Modi suffered a set-back after the Bombay High Court dismissed his petition to reconstitute the Disciplinary Committee set up by the BCCI to look into the corruption charges levelled against him.
