IPL Verdict: Gurunath Meiyappan Suspended for Life from Cricket Participation
The Supreme Court-appointed committee, headed by former Chief Justice of India R M Lodha today imposed a two-year ban on IPL franchises Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings. The committee found Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra guilty of betting and imposed a lifetime ban on both of them.
"On criminal action, the law will take its own course," Justice Lodha said while pronouncing his order.
While pronouncing the verdict, Justice Lodha did not buy the argument that Meiyappan was officially not part of the CSK and Raj Kundra, a United Kingdom citizen, was not aware of Indian regulation against betting.
