SC names fresh panel to probe IPL spot-fixing

New Delhi, Oct 8 : The Supreme Court Tuesday appointed a three-member committee headed by former Punjab and Haryana High Court Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal to investigate the allegations of spot-fixing and betting in the Indian Premier League (IPL).


The apex court bench of Justice A.K. Patnaik and Justice J.S. Kehar said the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and its president N. Srinivasan would completely keep off the probe panel but will extend all the facilities required by the investigators.

Having appointed the probe panel, the court also lifted its order restraining Srinivasan from taking the charge of the apex cricketing body upon his election as then BCCI chief.

The other two members of the probe panel, which has been asked to submit its report as early as possible, preferably within four months are Senior counsel and Additional Solicitor General L. Nageshwar Rao and senior advocate Nilay Dutta.

The court order appointing the probe committee came after both the BCCI and the cricket Association of Bihar conveyed their consent to the court's earlier suggestion to appoint an independent probe panel to look into the allegations of spot-fixing and betting.
