Wednesday 07 April 2021

Former Gujarat Director General of Police (DGP) Shabir Hussein Shekhadam Khandwawala is the new chief of BCCI’s anti-corruption unit. He replaces Ajit Singh Shekhawat, whose tenure finished on March 31.


 “His (Khandwawala’s) appointment was done last month itself. The board wanted Ajit Singh to continue during the IPL but he didn’t accept the offer,” a board official said.


 The ACU head is responsible for supervising investigation/inquiries, looking into complaints directed to the post, collecting intelligence and liaising with police authorities, and ensuring preventive measures are in place against corruption during various tournaments hosted by the BCCI. He also has to coordinate security measures for domestic and international tournaments in liaison with police and host cricket associations.
