The Enforcement Directorate has issued a blue alert against Lalit Modi in the IPL case. This means he can be intercepted and checked thoroughly before he travels abroad.
Modi is being investigated for income tax fraud when he was the Commissioner of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Various deals he struck-including a controversial broadcast rights deal – allegedly violated the law and have been canceled since.
Modi is also being investigated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). A disciplinary committee is hearing the charges against him. Modi believes that the committee is prejudiced against him.
Modi has repeatedly said he is not guilty of any financial misdeeds.
