Crime Branch CID (CB-CID) sleuths here on Sunday said that they have no evidence so far that can link hotelier Vikram Aggrawal and Gurunath Meiyappan in the IPL betting scandal except for the record of calls between the two.

Meanwhile, three special teams have been formed that would rush to Mumbai to secure Aggrawal.

According to CB-CID sleuths, they now rely on Aggrawal’s statement to find if he has any links with Meiyyappan. Narindra Pal Singh, DGP, CB-CID, told Express, “We started with (the arrest of) a bookie. We have no evidence to link Gurunath except for call logs between them. Only after we question Vikram, we can find out.”

Mumbai sleuths found during interrogation of Vindoo Dara Singh that he was introduced to Meiyappan by Vikram. Subsequently, it led to Meiyappan’s arrest.

The teams are rushing to Mumbai to secure Vikram, who skipped TN sleuths and appeared before Mumbai Police despite being issued a summons to appear here. “We don’t know when the teams would leave for Mumbai,” a senior official said.

Earlier, the TN sleuths had seized many pieces of incriminating evidences from Vikram’s hotels including CCTV footage and ledgers during raids. The agency also has evidence that nailed Kitty. Tracking of telephone towers had showed that Kitty and Aggrawal were in the same vicinity. Kitty had earlier confessed to have used the room of the hotel owned by Vikram to allegedly run a betting den.
