IT sleuths wanted info concerning contracts with IPL: WSG

April 22, 2010 10:10 IST

Income Tax sleuths on Wednesday sought information from World Sports Group (WSG) in relation to matters concerning BCCI and IPL, WSG said.

"The tax officials requested details of the contractual arrangements in relation to the BCCI and IPL and WSG co-operated fully with the investigating officers and will continue to do so," the company said in a statement in Mumbai.

IT officials had visited WSG office on Wednesday morning for the very same purpose.

WSG acquired the international media rights for the IPL in January 2008 for a period of ten-years following a public tender process for these rights. The arrangements between WSG and each of its sub-licensees have been agreed in the normal course of business and each approved by all relevant parties, it said.

"WSG strongly refutes the allegation of any impropriety in relation to these matters and totally rejects unsubstantiated comments reported in the media about its business transactions," it added.
