Former Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar was Monday appointed as chief adviser of the BCCI’s Anti -Corruption & Security Unit (ACSU) for a term of one year.
The decision to appoint Kumar to the top post was taken at the Governing Council Meeting of the Indian Premier League New Delhi, which was chaired by IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla. BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur made the announcement to the media this evening.
It was under Kumar’s leadership that Delhi Police arrested former Test bowler S Sreesanth along with domestic spinners Ankeet Chavan and Ajit Chandila for allegedly getting involved in spot-fixing while playing for Rajasthan Royals in the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League.
Earlier Ravi Sawani was the chief of the ACSU before his term ended. Thakur said that Kolkata will host the final match of the ongoing IPL.
