Soon sports would be under the CBI scanner. The country’s top investigation agency has plans of setting-up a specialised unit to tackle cases of sports fraud, fixing and illegal betting. CBI Director Ranjit Sinha, acknowledging lack of a legal framework as the main hurdle in probing corruption in sports, said that: “…very soon we shall set up a sports fraud investigation unit in the CBI under special crime branches.” The specialized unit would act as repository of intelligence and data concerning corruption in sports. It would also coordinate with similar agencies across the world and sports federations to build capabilities to tackle the menace of corruption. CBI chief, highlighting the increased cases of match-fixing, said that a law to tackle corruption in sports is in the final stages of drafting by the Sports Ministry.
