NEW DELHI: Former IPL chief Lalit Modi stirred a hornet’s nest through a latest revelation about an alleged corporate fixing involving Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) top brass. While releasing purported minutes of a BCCI meeting that was attended by Shahshank Manohar, N Srinivasan, and Prof. Ratnakar Shetty, Lalit Modi claimed that BCCI arm twisted Multi Screen Media (MSM) Singapore.

The leaked email from Ashok Nambissan to Ashok N of Set India informs the decision taken by the BCCI placing two conditions before MSM Singapore. Express, however, cannot verify the authenticity of the document, which was released on social media by Lalit Modi. The purported minutes of meeting on corporate fixing has put BCCI in the dock.

“If MSM Singapore does not co-operate, BCCI will:

- Terminate the Media Rights License Agreement (MRLA) on grounds of ‘fraud’, ‘collusion’, etc.

- Include MSM Singapore in the criminal complaint as an abettor

If MSM Singapore “co-operates”, BCCI will:

- Remove cross default

- Ratify the MRLA to make it binding on the BCCI

- Support MSM Singapore by going on appeal in any proceeding initiated against it by WSGM

- Favourably consider any amendments to the MRLA including removal of ad-inserts

- Express support for action taken by MSM Singapore.”
