IPL spot-fixing: Wasn’t aware of the BCCI probe panel appointment, says Jagdale
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: The IPL spot-fixing controversy saw a new turn when Sanjay Jagdale, the former BCCI secretary said that he wasn’t aware of the panel that was formed to look into the spot-fixing charges.
Jagdale in a letter said that he wasn’t aware of any Governing Council meeting that took place to appoint the panel.
His statement could be a major revelation as the BCCI`s media release on May 28 was sent out in his name as he was the secretary of the board at that time.
Earlier in the day, in a major blow to the BCCI, the Bombay High Court on Tuesday termed the two-member probe panel formed by the cricket board to investigate IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal as unconstitutional and illegal.
The court has asked BCCI to form a new probe panel.
A division bench of justices S J Vazifdar and M S Sonak was hearing a public interest litigation filed by Cricket Association of Bihar and its secretary Aditya Verma challenging the constitution of the two-member commission, set up by the BCCI and IPL Governing Council to probe allegations of betting and spot fixing.
As per reports, BCCI is likely to appeal in Supreme Court against the order.
