Mumbai/Chennai, May 23: Chennai Super Kings CEO Gurunath Meiyappan today sought time till Monday to appear before Mumbai police for questioning in connection with the IPL betting scandal, police said.




Sources in the crime branch, probing the racket, said the request from Meiyappan for allowing him to appear on Monday was received this evening, hours after he was issued summons.

“The request is under consideration,” a crime branch source said on condition of anonymity.

Though the full contents of the letter is not immediately known, it is believed that CSK honcho wanted to be spared from making a personal appearance before the IPL final encounter on Sunday which his team is set to play in Kolkata.




Earlier in the day, a crime branch team had issued summons to Meiyappan asking him to appear before it tomorrow after he was found to be in “frequent touch” with actor Vindoo Randhawa, son of late wrestler-actor Dara Singh, arrested in connection with the scandal.



Since Meiyappan was not available in Chennai, the summons was pasted at his residence and a copy delivered to CSK's office.

Meiyappan was seen with arrested Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh during the CSK vs Mumbai Indians match. Vindoo had told interrogators that he had gone to the VIP lounge on invitation from Meiyappan.
