Aditya Verma and the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) advised the Supreme Court to make total report of the Mudgal Commission led by Justice Mukul Mudgal which examined the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing scam on Tuesday so that countrymen could recognize the culprits hiding behind the scenes.
Counsel Harish Salve who is appearing for the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) asked the Supreme Court to reveal the full Mudgal committee report while also producing in the court Indian Premier League (IPL) accreditation papers that clearly shows Gurunath Meiyappan as the Team Principal of Chennai Super Kings (CSK). His father-in-law, Narayanswami Srinivasan had in the past said that Meiyappan is merely a cricket fanaticand has nothing to do with Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
They argued that suspended Board of Control for Cricket in India President Narayanswami Srinivasan should not be permitted to contest for another term. The petitioners claimed the ending of Srinivasan’s company Chennai Cements which owned Indian Premier League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) since its official Gurunath Meiyippan has been indicted for betting.
In the court today, the Board of Control for Cricket in India against their move to make the report public. If they have nothing to terror about, then why they are afraid of putting the report in the public domain, said Aditya Verma who is the petitioner in the case.
He added that we were able to sufficiently start that Narayanswami Srinivasan was only trying to save the interest of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and his son-in-law. Their counsel has submitted documentary proof to prove Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurnath Meiyappan was a team official. It is a matter of ignominy that he has been reported by the Mudgal Commission for indulging in betting.
The apex Court had asked Narayanswami Srinivasan to address the question of dispute of interest as head of Board of Control for Cricket in India known as BCCI and also the owner of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Narayanswami Srinivasan was summoned by the enquiry committee for not taking the steps against the cricketer while his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra were found guilty of spot fixing that could leave their teams Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) in trouble.
