The Indian cricket board's disciplinary committee has found former IPL chairman Lalit Modi guilty on nine alleged counts of indiscipline, while absolving him of two charges in a report submitted in June.
The findings are to be discussed at a special general body meeting on September 25 in Chennai and sources said a life ban could be imposed on Modi.
Modi has been found guilty of alleged bid rigging by adding unreasonable clauses in the tender draft to buy two new teams to favour two companies.
The report also puts Modi in the dock for allegedly not disclosing that his relatives had stake in a company that purchased rights for the IPL web site, using arm-twisting tactics against the Kochi franchise as well as attempting to float a rebel league in England. It also found lapses on the part of Modi in awarding theatrical rights.
He was, however, given a clean chit in the proxy ownership case where it was alleged that he had a stake in three IPL teams — Kolkata, Rajasthan and Mohali.
The disciplinary committee comprising Arun Jaitley, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Chirayu Amin has also found Modi guilty of allegedly misusing his powers and holding a grudge against the Kochi franchise.
