In case of Kolkata Knight Riders, the ED is investigating two separate sale of shares by the company and its shareholder in 2009 and 2010 to Sea Island Investment Ltd, a Mauritius-based company. The ED has alleged that the shares of KKR in these two transactions were undervalued.

The ED has also appointed chartered accountancy firm, Chokshi & Chokshi LLP, to audit the value of equity shares of IPL franchisees to arrive at the correct valuation of sale of shares.

“Chokshi & Chokshi has already submitted a report on Kolkata Knight Riders Pvt Ltd,” said a senior ED official, but declined to divulge the contents of the report.

A major contention of some of the IPL franchises is that sale of shares in the early days of the IPL were at a time when there was little in terms of valuations to go by and when there was a controversy surrounding the league.
