Modi has been found guilty of alleged bid rigging by adding unreasonable clauses in the tender draft to buy two new teams to favour two companies.

The report also puts Modi in the dock for allegedly not disclosing that his relatives had stake in a company that purchased rights for the IPL web site,using arm-twisting tactics against the Kochi franchise as well as attempting to float a rebel league in England. It also found lapses on the part of Modi in awarding theatrical rights.
