IPL scandal: Petitioner objects to BCCI panel, SC turns to Mudgal Committee

| April 22, 2014, 11:39 AM IST

The BCCI on Tuesday proposed its new three-member probe panel to the Supreme Court to investigate into the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing and betting scandal, but after objection from petitioner Aditya Verma, the SC turned back to Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee asking it to respond by 2 p.m. if it can probe further.

The SC has suggested the Mudgal committee to take help from investigators and continue their probe against N Srinivasan and 12 others named in its report, but the final decision on this is expected later in the day on Tuesday when the court resumes proceedings.

Also, the top court has asked the Mudgal Committee to submit audio recordings of its proceedings, while allowing BCCI and Srinivasan to hear some portions of it. However, the SC directed BCCI and Srinivasan to not reveal anything about the contents of those recordings to anyone. "Any content of the audio recording going out means cricket would be 'blackened' in the country," SC reportedly said.

Two days ahead of the all-important hearing, the BCCI Working Committee had met and formed a three-member panel comprising CBI director RK Raghavan, former Calcutta High Court chief justice JN Patel and former India captain Ravi Shastri to be proposed to SC. However, there were serious question marks over the credibility of the panel.

While Justice Patel is the brother-in-law of the interim BCCI president Shivlal Yadav, Shastri is under a contract with the BCCI. As a result, Verma decided to object to the panel in court, which he did on Tuesday.

The SC had earlier asked N Srinivasan to step down from his post as BCCI president until the probe is over, while appointing former India captain Sunil Gavaskar and Yadav to take care of the IPL and BCCI affairs, respectively.
