Apex court pulls up N. Srinivasan for attending meet despite ban

New Delhi, Feb 23 (ANI): India's top court on Monday slammed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief N. Srinivasan for participating in a cricket board meeting on February 8. Last year, the Supreme Court had asked Srinivasan to step down to ensure a probe into illegal betting during 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL), in which his son-in-law has been indicted. The involvement of Gurunath Meiyappan, who is married to the daughter of the BCCI president, in the illegal betting case was proved by a court-appointed committee. The committee had been set up by the Supreme Court. The court has asked for Srinivasan's stand by February 27. Feb 23, 2015
