The Chennai police has issued fresh summons to suspended IPL commissioner Lalit Modi and five others over the a complaint of misappropriation of Rs 468 crore, filed by Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary N Srinivasan.

Modi and five others -- Harish Krishnamachari of Mumbai, Ajay Verma of New Delhi and World Sports Group office-bearers Venu Nair, Andrew Georgio and Seamus O'Brien -- have been asked to appear for an inquiry either on January 25, 26 or 28, a date suitable for them, Police Commissioner T Rajendran told reporters on Thursday.

"If they fail to appear on any of these dates, legal steps will be taken to bring them for inquiry," he added.

Srinivasan had lodged a complaint against Modi last year, charging him with misappropriation of Rs 468 crore, mainly in allotting media and free commercial rights.

Modi and the others did not respond to the summons issued in December, asking them to appear in the first week of this month.

However, Kunal Dasgupta, whose name also figured in the complaint, had complied with the police summons.
