Earlier in the day, Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association president Jyotiraditya Scindia replaced BCCI president Shashank Manohar in the disciplinary committee, which was tasked with looking into the charges against Modi.

Manohar had to step down from the panel after Modi accused him of bias.
Scindia joined Chirayu Amin and Arun Jaitley as a member on the panel probing cases against Modi.

Reports are also claiming that the BCCI will initiate criminal proceedings against Modi.

Modi had been charged on several counts ranging from financial irregularities to bid- rigging as chairman of the cash-rich IPL.
