Supreme Court has told N Srinivasan that he should not presume he has a clean chit, and must be present during the hearing that is to take place tomorrow. The court also told Srinivasan to not go merely by the judgement of Mudgal panel. Supreme Court had come down hard on Srinivasan during today’s (Nov 24) hearing.

“You will have to address question of conflict of interest as head of BCCI and also as owner of IPL team, whose official is found to be involved,” the court’s statement was tweeted by Press Trust of India.

The court also added that it has now become a mutual benefit society hinting at board administrators owning IPL teams. This strong indictment by the court comes days after the board was trying to give a clean chit to Srinivasan after the court in its earlier hearing had said that Srinivasan was not involved in fixing.
