The Indian Premier League (IPL) case against Lalit Modi is still open with the Chennai police. A cheating case slapped on him in 2010 is pending, said a source in the police department not wishing to be quoted.
The case has been with the central crime branch (cheating wing) over the years, but the recent political controversy over former IPL commissioner Modi may drive the police officials to restart the investigation.
It is understood the then president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), N Sirinivasan, had registered a complaint against Modi, charging him with misappropriation of Rs 470 crore in a case related to allotting media broadcasting rights and free commercial rights.
Acting on the complaint, central crime branch officials registered a case of cheating in 2010 against seven people including Modi.
When contacted, deputy commissioner of police, Central Crime Branch, S Selvakumar confirmed the report.
In an interview to a TV channel last month, Modi had said DMK supremo M Karunanidhi, the then chief minister of Tamil Nadu, and former minister P Chidambaram were instrumental in framing the case against him.
