The anti-corruption unit (ACU) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will now be led by 1982-Rajasthan cadre IPS officer Ajit Singh. Singh retired last year as the Director General of Police, Rajasthan.
From April 6, he will replace Neeraj Kumar as the new head of the ACU and said to Sportstar, “I have discussed with the BCCI that the ACU needs to be strengthened and the Board is all ready to strengthen the unit.”
“I will assess the situation and if there is requirement, I would definitely ask for more people,” the seasoned officer stated.
“To keep the sport clean is the priority. It needs to be seen how that can be done. I also need to find out what the loopholes are and then figure out the measures. Whatever is needed to keep the game clean will be done,” Singh stated.
Neeraj Kumar has been retained as the advisor to ACU till 31st May.
“The unit has certain practices and it must be having certain norms. I will examine them and see what can be done. If it is required there could be some additions or changes made to the system,” Singh said.
