New Delhi:It seems like an open war now between the Board of Control for Cricket in India and Lalit Modi as BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan has now lodged an official complaint with the Chennai Police Commissioner against the former IPL chief.
The complaint mentions misappropriation of funds, media rights and security issues to the tune of 470 crore rupees. The complaint is filed in Chennai as the cricket Board is registered there.
The Chennai Police Commissioner T Rajendran has informed the media that a criminal complaint has been filed against Lalit Modi.
"There are three main charges...It is a detailed complaint that they have given.So we will go through the complaint. It will be investigated by us as BCCI is registered in Chennai," Rajendran said.
Srinivasan has said that the AGM of BCCI decided to file a comprehensive police complaint against Lalit Modi and now the police will look into the matter.
This comes just days after the BCCI took a stern step of barring two IPL teams (Rajasthan Royals and King's XI Punjab) with eminent Lalit Modi connections. (Read: BCCI bars Rajasthan Royals, King's XI from IPL 4)
There was also a controversy about an SMS being circulated from Srinivasan's phone to all IPL franchises about how the Board would clip the wings of all those who will maintain their connections with Modi. The BCCI though had denied that Srinivasan sent the SMS. (Read: Srinivasan denies sending SMS to IPL franchises)
