SC names Srinivasan in Mudgal Committee spot fixing probe
The Supreme Court Friday disclosed the names of four key cricket personalities investigated by the Justice Mudgal Committee for allegations of spot fixing and betting in the 2013 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
 
The apex court bench comprising justice T.S. Thakur and justice F.M. Kalifullah said those under the Mudgal scanner were sidelined Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president N Srinivasan, BCCI chief operating officer (COO) Sunder Raman, IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals (RR) co-owner Raj Kundra and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team principal Gurunath Meiyappan besides at least three yet unnamed players.
 
In the wake of Friday's developments, the BCCI elections - scheduled for Nov 20 - have been put on hold for another four weeks.The BCCI had earlier postponed its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and annual elections after the Supreme Court on Sep 1 ignored pleas to reinstate sidelined board chief Srinivasan in his post.
 
The Supreme Court bench said the Mudgal Committee report dealing with the conduct and role of Srinivsasan, Meiyappan, Sundar Raman and Raj Kundra will be given to these four people as well as to the BCCI and the petitioner Cricket Association of Bihar for their respective rejoinders.The court, however, said that the identity of the players named in the report will be held back for the time being.
 
The court said it would make the report available to lawyers on both sides so that they can make their arguments when the next hearing takes place Nov 24.The court said all the parties will file their objections to the report within four days of its receipt and they will have the liberty to file responses to rival objections in another four days and directed the listing of the matter for Nov 24.
 
The court recorded the statement made by BCCI counsel C.A. Sundaram that the meeting of the BCCI annual general body which was scheduled to be held Nov 20, will now take place after four weeks.
 
Earlier Monday, senior counsel Sundaram had urged the court to see the conclusion of the report and disclose it if there was nothing against any of the office bearers, keeping in mind the Nov 20 general meeting of the board.
