The Supreme Court of India on Tuesday asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to immediately against Gurunath Meiyappan, who was proven guilty in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing and betting scandal.

The court said, “We want action against Meiyappan. What can be done to decide quantum of punishment? We don’t want to bypass the BCCI and announce punitive measures.”

According to ANI, the Supreme Court asked N Srinivasan on Tuesday, “Tell us you invested Rs 400 crore in purchasing IPL team just due to love for cricket or for business?”

The apex court gave the following options on Tuesday morning during the hearing, which will be continued later in the day, according to latest reports.

1. BCCI to investigate matter without N Srinivasan.

2. Form a committee to investigate against N Srinivasan and Gurunath Meiyappan

3. Governing Council to take action without N Srinivasan

4. Mudgal Committee takes action against N Srinivasan.
