India cricket league boss suspended

Allegations of fraud and match-fixing rock the country's biggest sport.

    Indian cricket officials have held emergency talks, demanding the chairman of the Indian Premier League answer a raft of accusations of corruption.

    Lalit Modi was suspended on Sunday in the worst crisis to hit the Indian game since 2000, when widespread allegation of match-fixing rocked the sport.

    Modi has denied an wrongdoing, but as investigations begin politicians, businessmen and Bollywood stars could be facing some tough questions.
