IPL spot-fixing: Mudgal Committee files final report, enough proof against Meiyappan
New Delhi: Mudgal Committee has filed final report in probe against N Srinivasan and others in the 2013 edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) in betting and spot-fixing scandal in Supreme Court Monday.
The apex court bench headed by Justice T.S. Thakur, before which senior counsel Raju Ramachandran submitted the report Monday, said that it will be taken up for hearing as scheduled Nov 10.
Mudgal panel might also tell Supreme Court in its report that there is enough evidence against Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of ICC chief N Srinivasan, for his alleged involvement in betting during the 2013 IPL matches.
The committee is also learnt to have found enough material against Meiyappan, who was not just a 'cricket enthusiast' as claimed by Srinivasan but was involved in betting.
Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh was also arrested for allegedly acting as a middleman between Meiyappan and bookies.
Earlier, in the interim report, submitted to the court in August this year, the panel talked about the role of 13 individuals and the alleged involvement of Meiyappan, an official of CSK, in betting and leaking confidential match related information during the 2013 IPL matches.
The committee which had submitted its preliminary report in February, had mentioned about role of Srinivasan and Meiyappan in the scandal.
Acting on the report, the apex court in May had asked Srinivasan to step down from the post of president of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
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 are behind bars on allegations of betting during the sixth edition of the cash-rich league.
