The Mukul Mudgal board will be gathering police investigations from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai on Wednesday in the Tamil Nadu capital before submitting what could be a between time report to the Supreme Court on the spot fixing and betting scandal that hit the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013.
Sources told IANS that Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) delegate chief BB Mishra, a part of the Supreme Court-designated board of trustees, will be meeting investigating teams from the three urban areas. The Supreme Court had set a due date of August-end for submitting the report.
We will meet police authorities from Chennai, Delhi and Mumbai before finalising the full report. Since Delhi and Mumbai police were the first to uncover the scandal, we need to take inputs from them on the pending cases before we could submit a report to the Supreme Court,” a part of the board told IANS on Tuesday on the state of anonymity.
Delhi Police were the first to bust the embarrassment after they captured three Rajasthan Royals cricketers — S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan — in a midnight raid in Mumbai. Mumbai police additionally uncovered betting connections after they captured Gurunath Meiyappan, child in-law of former Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief N Srinivasan, and Bollywood performing artist Vindoo Dara Singh.
Justice (retd.) Mudgal told IANS that the advisory group would meet to choose whether to look for more of an opportunity from the apex court to submit its report. “We will meet Wednesday to choose whether we require more of a chance. We need to experience all the examination points of interest before recording the report,” Mudgal told IANS.
A week ago, the board had discharged an announcement saying that they have no expectations of grilling any Indian cricketer in England since it may irritate the battling group’s focus. Anyhow the council is liable to look for more of a chance as they need to grill some of cricketers after they return and in the in the interim submit an interval report.
