The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has refrained from making any comments or take any action against the two IPL players who were caught in a rave party, saying that the management won't act based on media reports.
The BCCI officials said that they would only take decision after the investigation gets over.
A police team busted a rave party on Sunday evening at the Oak Woods Hotel in Juhu, Mumbai. At least 58 men and 38 women were detained including two Pune Warriors players, South African Wayne Parnell and spinner Rahul Sharma.
"The BCCI-IPL is aware of media reports regarding two cricketers, Wayne Parnell and Rahul Sharma, and a party in a Mumbai hotel on Sunday evening. Whilst the players had completed their commitments for the 2012 IPL season, they remain contracted to Pune Warriors India and the IPL," BCCI Honorary Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement.
"There will be no further comment or action by BCCI-IPL until the results of the investigation by the concerned authorities into the above mentioned situation are known," Jagdale said.
This comes as a big relief to both the IPL players who have claimed their innocence. Rahul Sharma said that they were at a different party in the Oak Woods Hotel, when the raid took place.
According to media reports, police officials have reportedly seized several narcotic substances including MDMA, Ecstasy, charas along with 110 grams of cocaine during the one-hour raid at the hotel.
Over 100 people who were taken into detention are believed to be high-profile people, foreigners, and celebrities. However, they were freed after their blood and urine samples were collected for medical test, to find out whether they indulged in the alleged drug abuse.
Meanwhile, Vishesh Vijay Handa, the organiser of the rave party, was arrested by police on Monday under the Narcotic Drugs Act. He was remanded to custody till May 25.
