The Supreme Court-appointed probe commission headed by justice Mukul Mudgal submitted its final report to the apex court on the allegations of spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League’s season 6 betting and spot-fixing scandal today.
The Supreme Court will take cognizance of the Mudgal committee report that was submitted in a sealed envelope on IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal on November 10.
Cricketers S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were three prominent IPL cricketers arrested on allegations of spot-fixing while former CSK ‘Team Principal’ Gurunath Meiyappan and Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh were behind the bars on allegations of betting during the sixth edition of the cash-rich league. They are all out on bail.
N Srinivasan had to step down as the BCCI president due to his involvement with CSK, one of the franchises under the radar, though he was nominated as the International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman.
The committee, comprising justice Mudgal, additional solicitor general L Nageswara Rao, advocate Nilay Dutta, deputy director general of police (Narcotics Control Bureau) BB Mishra and former India captain Sourav Ganguly, got together in the capital as the final draft of the report was being prepared.
“We will be submitting the final report to the Supreme Court on November 3. Beyond this, I won’t be able to divulge any other information,” Justice Mudgal had said earlier in the week.
