Mumbai: Claiming that he has no knowledge of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan's involvement in betting, BCCI chief N Srinivasan on Saturday said there will be no discrimination and action will be taken against him with the "same alacrity" with which steps were taken against players.
"You can be sure BCCI will act with the same alacrity. As far as Mr Gurunath is concerned, whatever steps of action which have been taken in case of anybody else, same will apply to him. There will be no discrimination," Srinivasan said.
Srinivasan claimed ignorance when asked about Chennai Super Kings 'Team Principal' Gurunath's involvement in betting on IPL matches, and corroborated his stance by claiming that he hardly watches a game or goes to the ground.
"I had no knowledge about Gurunath's involvement. Everybody knows that I hardly watch a game; everyone knows that I do not go to CSK's games.
"The fact is that a probe will be carried out, whatever steps to be taken, will be taken objectively and fairly," he told a news channel.
