IPL spot fixing scandal: Top court reserves ruling on SIT
The Supreme Court today reserved its verdict on the issue of appointing Special Investigation Team to probe the Indian Premier League spot fixing calumny.
Justices AK Patnaik and Fakir Mohammad Kalifulla reserved the judgement after having been informed that Justice Mukul Mudgal had agreed to conduct further investigation in the sensational scandal that has rocked the cricket-crazy nation.
Citing conflict of interest, the top court had earlier rejected the three-member panel appointed by Board of Control for Cricket in India.
Retired Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court Mudgal had also submitted in a sealed envelope a list of investigators who he would prefer to include in his team.
Justice Mudgal, in his earlier report, had named 10 capped players of Team India, including skipper M S Dhoni.
Former BCCI chief N Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan are also under the scanner for their alleged involvement in the alleged IPL spot fixing and betting wrongdoing.
The apex court reserved the verdict after BCCI opposed Mudgal panel investigation calling its findings 'erroneous'.
