The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave a final verdict on IPL spot fixing where Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra’s Rajasthan Royal team along with Gurunath Meiyappa’s Chennai Super Kings was suspended for next two years from the Indian Premier League.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday announced the punishment after appointing three committee headed by former CJI R M Lodha that held Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra involved in spot fixing of the match during IPL.
Apart from banning both the teams for two years, the committee has suspended former CSK team official owner Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra for life. Both the owners of the team are banned for life from doing any cricket activity carried by the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
The match fixing controversy is going since May 2013 after player Sreesanth and his other two teammates from Rajasthan Royals team were caught in spot fixing.
According to the reports, now the team owners Meiyappan and Kundra are likely to appeal against the verdict in the Supreme Court.
Shilpa Shetty’s husband and co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, Raj Kundra took to his twitter account after the verdict by the Supreme Court. In the series of tweets, he tweeted, “Many inaccuracies…Have requested for a copy of the judgement- obviously very shocked and disappointed… #Faith
