CHENNAI: A proposal to transfer former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi case to the CBI or Mumbai has been sent by the Chennai Police to the Tamil Nadu DGP. The case is of misappropriation of Indian Premier League funds by Lalit Modi. Police sources say, meanwhile the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is expecting the investigation completion report from the TN DGP as it is delaying the deportation of the former IPL commissioner. The case of Rs460 crore misappropriation was filed in 2010 on the basis of a complaint from former BCCI president N Srinivasan, but now the city police feel it cannot handle the case since no transaction was found to have happened in the city. The Enforcement Directorate had filed a money laundering case against Modi based on this FIR, and hence needs the investigation report to seek his deportation from the UK. A senior officer said, the proposal to transfer the case was sent to the DGP three months ago, but on records the case is shown as ‘under investigation’ by C Shyamal Devi, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police, central crime branch wing, police source says. “Our inquiries show that some transactions might have happened in Mumbai. There is nothing much to investigate here for us”. The case can be forwarded from the DGP of one state to another. “If the case is being forwarded to the CBI, the present DGP shall write a letter to the ministry of home affairs through the state government”, a retired senior Police officer in the rank of DGP said. ED is facing legal hurdles in getting Modi deported. Srinivasan had lodged a complaint against Modi, charging him with misappropriation of Rs460 crore in allotting media broadcasting rights and commercial rights. Central Crime Branch officials registered a case of cheating against Modi and six others– Kunal Dasgupta, Venu Nair, Andrew Georgio, Seamus O’brien, Harish Krishnamachar and Ajay Verma who were booked under various IPC sections including criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust, falsification of accounts and cheating.  ]]>
