IPL match scandal and Supreme Court’s disclosure of names
The court also asked BCCI, N. Srinivasan and other non-players who are named in the report to file their objections within four days of the receipt.
However, Supreme Court ordered non-disclosure of names of the players who have been indicted in the Mudgal Committee report and said that the copy of the report be provided to BCCI, Srinivasan and other non-players.
The court further added, “We have seen the report and it did suggest some misdemeanour on part of certain individuals. Certain findings recorded by committee are understood to have indicted some individuals whose conduct has been investigated.”
Meanwhile, the cricket body informed the court that the Annual General Meeting of BCCI for holding elections has been postponed
The Justice Mukul Mudgal-led committee, which was appointed by the Supreme Court to investigate the fixing and betting scandal in the cricket Indian Premier League (IPL), had submitted final report in probe against N Srinivasan and others to the apex court on November 3.
Earlier, the report was be submitted almost six months after the apex court had asked Indian Police Service officer BB Mishra and the police departments in Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai to assist the investigation.
The Supreme Court had then felt the need to dig deeper for information on the scam after the Mudgal panel’s preliminary report had mentioned the names of 13 important cricket officials and players in a sealed envelope, against whom allegations ranging from corruption to conflict of interest had been made.
