IPL Scandal: BCCI opposes Mudgal panel probe, SC reserves order on new panel

| April 29, 2014, 11:50 AM IST

The Supreme Court has reserved its order on the formation of new panel headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal to continue probing the betting and fixing allegations in the Indian Premier League, while the BCCI called the findings submitted so far as erroneous.

Resuming hearing in the petition filed by Bihar Cricket Association chief Aditya Verma, the court heard both sides on Tuesday but reserved its order on the formation of the panel even as BCCI asked for a fresh probe and reinstatement of ousted N Srinivasan as the board's president.

Justice Mudgal, meanwhile, asked for assistance from retired special director of CBI, ML Sharma, on the panel, along with a police official each from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai as well as a former cricketer of repute. He also said that it would take at least four months for the new panel to file its report.

While calling the findings of the Mudgal panel - also comprising eminent lawyers L Nageshwar Rao and Nilay Dutta - as erroneous, the BCCI also contended that nowhere in the deposition transcript did India and Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni and Srinivasan say that for former CSK Team Prinicipal Gurunath Meiyappan was just a cricket enthusiast.

The Mudgal committee in its report submitted to the SC has named Srinivasan and 12 others, and it's those names the SC wants Justice Mudgal to probe further.

Last week, the SC rejected the three-man panel proposed by the BCCI, which included former India captain Ravi Shastri, CBI director RK Raghavan and former Calcutta High Court chief Justice JN Patel after questions over conflict of interest.

The Mudgal committee was set up by the court in October 2013 to probe the spot-fixing allegations, which surfaced during the sixth season of IPL. The committee then submitted its report earlier this year in February, which included a sealed envelope containing names of 13 people under suspicion.
