New Delhi : The Supreme Court agreed to hear a plea in the IPL spot-fixing case seeking handing over of Justice Mudgal Committee’s report, containing names of players, to the Justice R M Lodha panel which is considering administrative reforms for BCCI.
The application filed by Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) was mentioned before a three-judge bench headed by Justice T S Thakur which ordered its listing for urgent hearing today at 2 pm. The plea claimed that if the entire contents of the third report are not given to the Justice Lodha Committee, the time and effort spent by Justice Mudgal Committee and the probe team would be wasted. “This is necessary since Justice Lodha Committee has to have the benefit of the full text of the Justice Mudgal Committee report to appreciate the extent of the malaise which has set in the game of cricket so that while suggesting the administrative reforms for BCCI it can suggest measures to ensure that in future the reputation of the game of cricket will not be sullied by any scam.
“If the full text of the third report is not given to the Justice Lodha Committee, the time and effort spent by Justice Mudgal Committee and the investigating team and the heavy expenditure incurred by the respective governments will go totally waste,” the plea filed by Aditya Verma, said.
It said the probe committee’s final report contains the allegations against the 13 persons and the sealed cover was not given to anybody and is lying with the SC Registry. —PTI
