Mumbai:The IPL on Thursday said it will "fully cooperate" with the Income Tax officials inquiring into the details of IPL teams.
"There is an inquiry. It is not a raid. The IT officials are possibly looking for the details of the tender (for Kochi team). We will extend all possible cooperation to them," IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi told PTI.
Immediately after the IT officials visited the offices of BCCI-IPL at Wankhede stadium here, Modi rushed to the headquarters to meet them.
There were reports, earlier this week, that IT and Enforcement Directorate could seek the details of the IPL franchise, particularly Kochi in the face of a major controversy involving some of the promoters.
Modi had divulged names of the Kochi franchise while alleging that Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor had asked him not to reveal the names of the promoters which included Sunanda Pushkar, a close friend of his.
