New Delhi: The CBI has filed charge sheet against former Joint Director of the Enforcement Directorate JP Singh and others in connection with the alleged corruption in the Indian Premier League (IPL) betting probe by the Directorate's Ahmedabad unit.

Besides Singh, a 2000-batch Indian Revenue Service officer of the customs and excise wing, the then Additional Director Sanjay Kumar has also been named in the charge sheet at a special CBI court in Ahmedabad yesterday.

It is alleged that the ED's Ahmedabad unit was probing the Rs 2,000-crore betting scandal in T20 cricket league IPL, and the Rs 5,000-crore money laundering case against alleged hawala operator Afroz Fatta, in which the suspects sought favours, said the sources. The CBI had said these officers took huge bribe as quid pro quo for various acts of omission and commission.
