Harbhajan Singh has been temporarily suspended from the DLF Indian Premier League by the match referee Farokh Engineer.

Harbhajan Singh, the Mumbai Indians stand-in captain, had allegedly slapped Kings XI Punjab pacer S Sreesanth on Friday night.

Farokh Engineer gave his decision based on prima facie video evidence provided by Sony & TWI.

"A decision has been reached to suspend with immediate effect Harbhajan Singh of the Mumbai Indians pending the inquiry into the incident on Monday, April 28th 2008," IPL Commissioner said in a press release.
