  • The Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee gave a clean chit to former IPL COO Sundar Raman in connection with the 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal, citing lack of evidence against him on Monday.
  • The BCCI President Shashank Manohar felt that Raman should have gone immediately after the Mudgal Committee report found him prima facie guilty of wrongdoings.

The Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee gave a clean chit to former IPL COO Sundar Raman in connection with the 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal, citing lack of evidence against him on Monday.

“There was not enough evidence against Sundar Raman and no knowledge of him knowing Vindoo (Dara Singh),” said Justice R M Lodha while reading out parts of the report he submitted to the Supreme Court.

Raman said, he hasn’t read the report and therefore he doesn’t want to comment on the matter.

I have not yet read the report so I would not want to comment on it. I have heard that I have been given a clean chit and I appreciate it but there is nothing more I want to add.

Earlier, the Justice Mukul Mudgal-led panel, which was formed to investigate the IPL spot-fixing scandal, had named Raman as Individual 12 in its report, which said he knew a contact of a bookie and had contacted him eight times in one season.

Raman should have gone immediately after the Mudgal Committee report found him prima facie guilty of wrongdoings. He ought to have stepped down immediately at that time.
