Suspended IPL chief Modi insists he's not hiding

Suspended Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi has said he is not in hiding, but refused to address the corruption charges facing him while at a London conference.
Modi has been living mainly outside India since being suspended by the Board of Control for Cricket in India as it investigates bribery allegations in the 2008 auction for new teams in the IPL.
India's External Affairs Ministry has threatened to revoke Modi's passport if he doesn't respond to the charges.
During an on-stage interview at the International Sports Event Management conference in London on Wednesday, Modi was asked whether some people might be surprised to see him attending.
He responded: "I guess so _ they thought I was in hiding somewhere ... but I'm right here."
