SC grants two-month extension to Mudgal Panel
Monday 01 September 2014

The Supreme Court gave the IPL 2013 probe panel - headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal - a two-month extension to complete its investigations and submit a final report.

The special SC bench, headed by Justice TS Thakur also gave a big set back to N Srinivasan by refusing to reinstate him as the BCCI President. The Apex Court also permitted the Commission to file another interim report on the matter, if they want to.

The hearing on this case has been adjourned till November 10, 2014. The Mudgal Panel had earlier submitted its interim report after a few investigations. However, it is yet to meet a few players to get more details in the case.

The committee report had mentioned about the involvement of N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, in betting and leaking confidential match-related information in the IPL. Three players from IPL teams Chennai Super Kings and two each from Delhi Daredevils and Mumbai Indians also figure in the confidential report submitted by the Mudgal panel.

Besides Justice Mudgal, the panel has Additional Solicitor General L Nageshwar Rao and advocate Nilay Dutta as members.

The IPL 2013 spot fixing and betting scandal had resulted in the arrest of Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of N Srinivasan and three Rajasthan Royals cricketers – S. Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.
