CBI summons BCCI chairman
The CBI has asked the MD of India Cements and chairman of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), N Srinivasan, to appear before it in connection with investments his company made in businesses owned by Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.
Srinivasan has been summoned in his capacity as MD of India Cements which allegedly received benefits from the YSR government for its cement plant in Kadapa district and in lieu of that invested in Jagan’s business by buying shares by paying huge premium.
A Government Order issued during YSR’s regime allegedly bent rules and allowed huge quantities of water from river Krishna to be allocated to India Cements’s plant in Kadapa. Srinivasan will be asked by the CBI to explain investments in Jagan’s Bharathi Cements and Sakshi newspaper.
