Azhar, Ajay may not appear before Madhavan

CHENNAI, Nov 10 (PTI) — Mohammed Azharuddin and Ajay Sharma summoned by cricket board’s watchdog K. Madhavan for cross examination on the findings of the CBI in match-fixing scandal may not appear before him here tomorrow to answer charges.

Only Manoj Prabhakar, who has also been summoned for cross-examination on the evidence gathered by the CBI, has confirmed that he would appear before Mr Madhavan, board sources said.

Mr Madhavan, a former CBI Joint Director, was appointed BCCI’s anti-corruption commissioner by the board at its working committee meeting in Bangalore on August 29.

Intriguingly, former captain Azharuddin has been elusive to the media, as well as board officials ever since the CBI report was made public last week.

The sources said Azharuddin was to appear before Mr Madhavan at 1230 pm tomorrow, but was ‘untraceable’. “We do not know whether he accepted Mr Madhavan’s letter requesting him to appear for an inquiry”, the sources said.
