Maharastra Govt sends notice to Rendezvous Sports' Ravi Gaikwad

April 16, 2010 09:22 IST

Ravi Gaikwad, the brother of Shailendra Gaikwad of Rendezvous Sports World, was reportedly served a notice by the Maharashtra government on Friday.

The Gaikwad family has 26% stake in Rendevvous Sports World, which clinched a Rs 1355 crore deal for Indian Premier League's Kochi franchise.

Ravi, who is an official with the state transport department, is connected to a 100 crore imported bikes scam.

Earlier, Shailendra had alleged that IPL commissioner Lalit Modi had offered a bribe to withdraw the Kochi team, which he later denied.

Following the allegations of bribe, Modi, on Wednesday, had threatened to sue Rendezvous Sports. Terming as "rubbish" the charges, Modi said: "Are they mad. Who will offer them what they say Rs 200 crore. I will take legal recourse."
