The Madurai bench of Madras High Court has issued notices to Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly, for their involvement in online sports app advertisements.

The bench consisting of Justices N Kirubakaran and B Pugalendhi has issued the notice. The case has been filed by Advocate Mohammed Rizvi after few youngsters committed suicide after losing money in such apps.

“The apps are in the name of IPL teams such as Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Rajasthan Royals (RR) and some apps are also in the name of state’s names. Are these teams playing on behalf of the state,” asked the bench.

As for the mentioned names, they need to respond to the notice by November 19.
