BCCI ethics officer finds Rupa Gurunath guilty of conflict of interest

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)’s ethics officer Justice DK Jain has found Rupa Gurunath – the president of Tamil Nadu Cricket Association – guilty of conflict of interest and has asked the Board to take appropriate steps.

Following a plea by Sanjeev Gupta in November last year, Jain issued an order on Thursday stating that Rupa holds two positions – president of TNCA and one of the directors of India Cements, which runs the Chennai Super Kings Cricket Limited.

According to the order – a copy of which is in possession of Sportstar – the two posts are in conflict because CSKCL is one of the subsidiary companies of India Cements.

As per the order, Rupa, who became the TNCA president in 2019, has to relinquish one of the posts.

P.S. Raman – appearing on behalf of Rupa in the hearings – maintained that she is in no way related to CSKCL, but the ethics officer said in his order that the CSKCL is a subsidiary of the India Cements Limited – and its operates from same premises – and that it accounts to conflict, even if she does not hold any posts.
