Mumbai: The Indian cricket board has issued a notice to Umpire Asad Rauf against corruption allegations. Recently a meeting of the BCCI disciplinary committee took place in Mumbai under the president ship of Shashank Manohar, the head of the anti corruption unit Ravi Sawani was also present.
Asad Rauf’s matter was reviewed and the Mumbai police claimed to have issued a charge sheet declaring him as a “Wanted accused” and wanted his presence for interrogation. Asad Rauf after being accused for corruption charges during the IPL vanished from India and never returned and since then the International Cricket Councel (ICC) has also forgotten him.
This incidence has also ruined his umpiring career. Asad Rauf has always been claiming his innocence and been demanding for corruption proofs if any. Now the Indian cricket board has issued a fresh notice asking him to reply to the corruption charges leveled against him in the IPL spot fixing case.
In the disciplinary committee another cricketer Ajit Chandila involved in fixing was also present. The decision regarding Shah who provoked Chandila and his fellow players for fixing in IPL has been deferred till 5th of January.
