New Delhi, Oct 7: The Enforcement Directorate has issued a Blue Notice-- an international alert to law enforcement agencies to obtain information about a person's identity and activities-- against former IPL chairman Lalit Modi in its probe into the finances of the T20 cricket tournament.  


The Blue Notice alert, which will be executed by the Interpol, has been issued by the ED to gather further information about Modi's whereabouts and his activities which is not known to the agency as he is in a foreign land, sources said.

Once such an alert is issued against an individual by a law enforcement agency in India, sleuths of the counterpart agency in a foreign land can intercept, question and in certain cases even detain the person who has been red flagged, the sources said.  

The ED is probing alleged violations under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) against various IPL franchises.

The objective of a Blue Notice, according to the Interpol, is "to collect additional information about a person's identity or activities in relation to a crime."

Modi, who was suspended as IPL Chairman by the BCCI in April, is facing 22 charges ranging from financial irregularities to rigging bids, proxy holdings and kickbacks in broadcast deals. PTI
