Former High Court justice Mukul Mudgal, who inquired into the alleged corruption in the IPL last year, now, will head a panel, which has greater powers than last time to investigate the contents which India’s supreme court possess. Mudgal’s associates on the previous committee, L Nageswara Rao and Nilay Dutta, will comprise of this panel as well. In its order delivered on Friday, the Apex Court asked this newly formed committee to submit its report on the verity the contents of sealed envelope by end of August.

The committee also has former senior Indian Police Service (IPS) officer BB Mishra. The committee, as per the court order, will have all the investigative powers, including search and seizure of relevant documents, but cannot carry out arrests. They will also get the assistance from one senior police officer each from cities of Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi, as per the recommendation of the committee.

Moreover, one former cricketer “of repute and integrity”, as asked by Mudgal and Mishra, will join the panel. The people working on the probe will be remunerated with Rs 1 lakh per working day, and all expenses will be endured by the BCCI.

The court, meanwhile, has refused BCCI’s request to appoint a completely new panel on the ground that the Mudgal committee’s findings were inaccurate. Apparently, Justice A K Patnaik, delivering the order, said it was good for the reputations of the 13 names in the sealed involved that the names don’t reach new eyes. Patnaik also cautioned BCCI that those names if released, will harm the reputations of “very famous” people “will cause damage beyond repair”.

Meanwhile, Sunil Gavaskar and Shivlal Yadav will continue in their respective interim roles until any further orders.
