New Delhi: Oct 8, 2013

Justice Mukul Mudgal on Tuesday assured that the probe into the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing and betting scandal would not be an eyewash.

The Supreme Court court on Tuesday set up a probe panel headed by former chief justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court Mudgal to inquire into the allegation of betting and spot-fixing in IPL.

“I can assure that it won’t be an eyewash, I don’t have the terms of references right now and I can say more after I get it,” Mudgal told CNN-IBN.

The justice reminded that the probe has been constituted by the apex court and not the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The ‘cricket loving’ justice also hinted that if the need arise the committee can question anybody in the Indian cricket board.

Senior advocate and additional solicitor general N Nageshwar Rao and Assam Cricket Association (ACA) member Nilay Dutta are the other two members of the newly-formed probe committee, and Mudgal have no doubts about their credentials.

The court has asked the probe panel to complete its inquiry within four months.

The apex court also directed BCCI and N Srinivasan not to interfere in the probe.

The committee will investigate Gurunath Meiyappan and owners of Rajasthan Royals and file a report on erring IPL franchisees, it said.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that N Srinivasan can resume his duties as BCCI president, so long as he doesn’t deal with any matters relating to the IPL.
