CBI sets up ‘Sport Integrity Unit’ to probe frauds in Sports

In order to control fixing in sports, the CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) has established a committed ‘Sport Integrity Unit’ to investigate into cases of fraud, fixing and illegal betting in any sporting event.

Objectives of this Sport Integrity Unit include:

  • Investigating into matters related to sports fraud
  • Battling malpractices in sports
  • Coordinating with sports federations and law enforcement agencies
  • Engaging with Ministry of Youth Affairs and sports so so as to come up with a law dealing with corruption in sports

‘Sport Integrity Unit’ would make India one of the very few countries in the world to have a committed unit set up as a part of its federal investigative agency to look into sports fraud. Presently, the US FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), Australian Federal Police and some European nations only have a dedicated unit to check sports frauds
