Plea seeking injunction against Srinivasan filed

New Delhi, Sep 23 : Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) secretary Aditya Verma Monday filed an application in the Supreme Court seeking an interim injunction restraining Indian cricket board president Narayanaswamy Srinivasan from attending the board's Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Chennai Sep 29.


Verma, in his application, also sought to restrain the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) from inducting Srinivasan in any of its committee as a member or allow him to participate in any of the proceedings in any capacity.

The pressure is mounting on Srinivasan not to seek a third year as BCCI chief in view of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan being charged by Mumbai police in the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting scandal, but he is adamant on seeking re-election.

Meiyappan, who is the principal of IPL side Chennai Super Kings, which is owned by Srinivasan's company India Cements, has been named in the 11,500-page chargesheet along with Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh.

Srinivasan has distanced himself from Meiyappan, who was among the 22 people chargesheeted by the investigators.

The chargesheet does not mention any instance of spot-fixing in the IPL matches. All the accused have been charged with cheating, gambling, conspiracy and forgery.

Srinivasan's name also figures among those chargesheeted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in a corruption case involving YSR Congress party chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, but he was quick to tell IANS that the case has nothing to do with his cricket activities.

In the charge-sheet relating to India Cements, CBI named Srinivasan, its managing director, as accused number three.

"Don't mix the business chargesheet with my cricket," was Srinivasan's terse reply.
