Supreme Court to resume hearing in IPL spot-fixing, betting scandal case

Supreme Court of India

New Delhi, Dec 1: The Supreme Court will resume its hearing of the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing and betting scandal case on Monday. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal is expected to argue for the former BCCI president, N. Srinivasan.

Earlier on Thursday, the apex Court had observed that IPL team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) should be disqualified without any further enquiry.

According to reports, the apex court favouring fresh BCCI elections had made an observation that all those involved in IPL spot-fixing should stand aside.

The court had also raised issues of conflict of interest against Srinivasan, after Gurunath Meiyappan, his son-in-law and a high-ranking official of the Chennai Super Kings, was indicted for betting during IPL 2013.

Earlier, the former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief had requested the court that he may be restored to his position as Indian cricket board chief.

The apex court had disclosed the names of a few personalities, who were probed by the Justice Mudgal Committee for alleged links to the IPL spot-fixing scandal.

The names disclosed, included that of Srinivasan, BCCI chief operating officer (COO) Sunder Raman, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra and Chennai Super Kings team principal Gurunath Meiyappan.

On March 25, the court had asked Srinivasan to step down from his position as the BCCI president in order to ensure a fair probe into the betting and spot-fixing charges levied against Meiyappan.
