IPL spot-fixing: SC issues notice to BCCI, N Srinivasan
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday issued a notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), N Srinivasan, and India Cements on a plea against the Bombay High Court verdict refusing to appoint a fresh committee to probe IPL spot fixing scam.
Earlier, the BCCI had filed an appeal in the Supreme Court on August 5, challenging the Bombay High court`s order that deemed its IPL probe panel as `illegal and unconstitutional’.
The BCCI, in its petition, had maintained that its two-member probe panel was legal. It mentioned that the panel was formed in accordance with the rules of the board.
A committee appointed by BCCI comprising two retired high court judges had given a clean chit to BCCI president in exile N Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and co-owner of Rajasthan Royals Raj Kundra in the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
