New Delhi: Sep 25, 2011

The Supreme Court on Monday will pass its verdict on former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi’s plea, seeking reconstitution of a BCCI-appointed disciplinary panel probing allegations of financial irregularities against him.

A bench comprising justices J M Panchal and H L Gokhale will pass the order on Modi’s plea of reconstitution of the three-member committee comprising Arun Jaitley, Chirayu Amin and Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Modi has sought removal of Jaitley and Amin from the panel, alleging that they might be biased against him.

He moved the apex court after the Bombay High Court on July 15, 2010 had dismissed his appeal of reconstitution of the committee and challenging his suspension from BCCI. (PTI)
