New Delhi: Finance Ministry Pranab Mukherjee on Monday said a thorough probe had been ordered on the source and uses of funds by the franchises of Indian Premier League (IPL) and that no one guilty of wrong-doing will be spared.

"I can assure you that all aspects of IPL will be probed, inclusive of the sources of funding, how the funds were routed and invested," Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee told the Lok Sabha on Monday.
