The Central Investigation Bureau of the Nepal Police says it has concluded an investigation of the charge of spot-fixing in the Nepal T20 League.

Following this, it submitted the report to the Kathmandu District Government Attorney’s Office to take forward the prosecution.

SP Sanjaya Singh Thapa, a CIB investigator, says the police report has named 10 people as major culprits in the case and asked for a jail sentence of three years and a Rs 50,000 fine from each of them.

On January 23, CIB arrested national team member Adil Ansari and ex-cricketer Mehboob Alam on charges of being involved in spot-fixing. Following that, a local cricketer from Birgunj has also been arrested on the same charge.

It has been learned that Jatin Ahluwalia, a co-founder of the event’s strategic partner, Seven3Sports, is the mastermind of the Nepal T20 League spot-fixing.
