The Board of Management for Cricket in India (BCCI) appointed former Rajasthan Director Common of Police (DGP) Ajit Singh as the top of the Anti-Corruption Unit on Saturday.
Having served the Indian Police Service for near 4 a long time — a 1982-Rajasthan cadre IPS officer retired as DGP in 2017 — Singh is an skilled at dealing with anti-corruption operations, investigative work and subject policing. He had headed the anti-corruption bureau for Rajasthan prior to now.
Singh will take cost forward of the Indian Premier League (IPL) starting April 7. He will probably be based mostly out of the BCCI headquarters at Cricket Centre, Mumbai.
Neeraj Kumar, the previous Police Commissioner of Delhi, has been retained as advisor to the unit until Might 31.
There’s a little bit of a blur as to why the person, who stored Indian cricket corruption-free ever because the spot-fixing scandal within the sixth version of the IPL, is being eliminated all of a sudden. It may very well be a direct consequence of the letter Neeraj wrote to the Supreme Courtroom-appointed Committee of Directors and BCCI CEO Rahul Johri emphasising their disinterest in combating corruption.
When the match-fixing incident involving Hansie Cronje, the deceased South African captain, occured in 2000, Kumar was the DGP with the Central Bureau of Investigation. The company had procured a dialog between a bookie and Cronje.
Together with the Worldwide Cricket Council, the BCCI will work in the direction of sustaining the very best stage of compliance in the course of the IPL.
