The Mumbai Police earlier in September chargesheeted former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team principal Gurunath Meiyappan for betting and cheating during the IPL.

The Mumbai Police has said they found no evidence of spot-fixing against Meiyappan.

The police also named actor Vindoo Dara Singh and 15 bookies from Pakistan in the chargesheet.

The BCCI had found four Rajasthan Royals (RR) players guilty of spot-fixing during IPL 6.

The board also banned former Test pacer S. Sreesanth and Ankit Chavan for life from playing any representative cricket, or in any way being associated with the activities of the BCCI or its affiliates

The lid was blown off the IPL scam after Sreesanth, Chandila and Chavan - were arrested along with 11 bookies from Mumbai on May 16 for their role in spot-fixing in the ongoing tournament.
