Nation wide raid on IPL franchisees offices

New Delhi: Income Tax officials on Wednesday questioned IPL chief Lalit Modi as they swooped down on the offices of IPL franchisees Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings, Deccan Chargers and Kings XI and also on companies handling the broadcast rights of the cash-rich cricket League.

The questioning of Modi, the second time in a week, by about half-a-dozen senior IT officials at Modi’s office in a plush central Mumbai hotel, related to IPL broadcasting rights and lasted for about an hour, an IT source said.

Earlier in the day, the IT officials conducted search and survey operations at the offices of Multi-Screen Media, formerly Sony Entertainment Television, International Management Group and World Sports Group (WSG), all of which are closely connected to the Lalit Modi-led IPL.

MSM is the telecasting agency of IPL, while WSG is its marketing arm.
