New Delhi: Senior BJP leader and BCCI Vice President Arun Jaitley on Sunday said N Srinivasan will maintain an "arms length distance" from the probe against his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan in the IPL-6 betting charges.
"There will be an enquiry which will be on, the charges being criminal will be investigated. There are no charges against him (Srinivasan). We are not going into this matter. Now, if you step aside and discharge no function, then you maintain a complete arms length distance from the cricket administration which he has to maintain," said Jaitley.
Bowing to all-round pressure, Srinivasan agreed to "step aside" as BCCI President under a compromise formula that brought back former Chief Jagmohan Dalmiya as head of a four-member "interim arrangement", more than a fortnight after the spot-fixing scandal rocked Indian cricket.
