Aditya Verma for a CBI or NIA probe

Calcutta: There are two more days to go before the Supreme Court once again takes up the case of corruption in Indian cricket and Aditya Verma is warming-up for the battle and has said that he will “pray” for a CBI or a NIA enquiry into the matter.

On Sunday, Verma, whose relentless fight saw Narayanswamy Srinivasan’s removal from the president’s chair of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), took potshots at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA).

Verma, in a statement, has accused that some “bookies” were staying in the team hotel in Ranchi during last year’s IPL. He also claimed that as per the charge sheet filed by Mumbai Police, IPL COO Sundar Raman was in “direct contact” with Vindoo Dara Singh.

“As per the charge sheet filed by the Mumbai Police, it is recorded that Sundar Raman was in direct contact with Vindoo Dara Singh in relation to the match-fixing allegations,” Verma said, adding that Raman was passing information about the Kolkata Knight Riders vs the Royal Challengers Bangalore match, played at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi last year, to Vindoo.

“As per the charge sheet filed by the Delhi police some of the bookies were staying in the same hotel as the players i.e. Radission Blu, Ranchi,” he said in the statement.
