Law Commission seeks cricket associations' views on legalizing betting

New Delhi: In a major development, the Law Commission of India has written to state cricket associations seeking their views on whether betting should be legalized in the country, reports a leading news channel.

A letter written to the associations by Dr Sanjay Singh, member secretary, Law Commission of India, says that the Supreme Court has mandated “the Law Commission of India to study the possibility of legalizing betting in India”.

The letter asks the associations to respond promptly so that the Commission could complete its report at an early date.

The letter comes in the backdrop of the case in Supreme Court between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Cricket Association of Bihar and others.

Both the central government and the BCCI have been vocal in their opposition against betting. However, there have been quite a few cases of the players having close contact with the bookies in the past, especially in the Indian Premier League matches.
