New Delhi: Aug 29, 2014

Justice Mukul Mudgal committee, which was directed by the Supreme Court to conduct a probe against ICC President N Srinivasan and 12 prominent players in the Indian premier League (IPL) 2013 betting and spot-fixing scandal, on Friday filed its report in a sealed cover before the apex court.

A bench headed by Justice T S Thakur took the report on record after a senior advocate mentioned the matter and fixed it for hearing on September one.

The court had in May rejected the proposal of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to conduct the probe through its own panel and had given the task of investigation to Justice Mudgal panel.

The Mudgal committee had earlier conducted the probe in the scandal and had submitted in a sealed envelope its report in which names of Srinivasan and 12 cricketers were mentioned.

“We are of the considered opinion that the allegations against the 13 persons including Srinivasan mentioned in the report submitted in the sealed cover should be investigated into by the Justice Mudgal Committee and the team of investigators because if a new Probe Committee is entrusted to inquire into the allegations, there is likelihood of the allegations being leaked to the public and such leakage will damage the reputation of the 13 persons beyond repair,” the bench had said.

The court had said that the Mudgal panel would also be assisted by Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai police and it will not reveal anything regarding the investigation to others and the media and will maintain absolute confidentiality.

It had then said that Sunil Gavaskar and Shivlal Yadav, who were appointed as interim presidents of BCCI after Srinivasan stepped aside from the post, will continue to do their job till further orders.

Later, on successful completion of IPL tournament, the bench discharged Gavaskar of his responsibility as the interim president of BCCI. BCCI had constituted a three-member panel comprising former Calcutta High Court Chief Justice J N Patel, ex-CBI director R K Raghavan and former all-rounder Ravi Shastri. The court, however, had asked the Mudgal panel to conduct the probe.
