Mumbai: The Cricket Board, yet to recover from the alleged scams of former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi, has a new problem confronting it with news reports on Sunday saying tax evasion notice has been issued to one of the investors of its new Kochi franchise by the Central Government.
BCCI president Shashank Manohar said from Nagpur that the Board would not do anything, but wait and watch the progress of this controversial development, for the present.
"We have not been informed directly about this. He (Harshad Mehta) has been reportedly served notice for tax evasion, which is not a criminal offence. We will wait and watch," said Manohar, reacting to the development that has the potential to grow into another new headache for the Board.
