The Central Crime Branch (CCB), which has been probing the Karnataka Premier League (KPL) match fixing and betting scandals, has issued a notice to the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) and the management of 11 cricket teams seeking answers to questions that the investigation has thrown up.

18 questions

Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Sandeep Patil said that the role of a few team owners and coaches have been revealed during the course of investigations.

“Notices containing a set of 18 questions have been issued seeking reply,” he said.

On Friday, a Look out Circular had been issued to the owner of Ballari Tuskers Arvind Venkatesh Reddy. As he is abroad, a notice has been served to him to appear before us for investigation, Mr. Patil said.

The CCB officials have also questioned many cricket players to ascertain their role in the spot fixing in KPL matches in the last two seasons.

So far, the CCB has arrested at least eight people, including four cricketers, the owner of Belagavi Panthers, and an international bookie involved in the scandal.
