Madras High Court on Friday issued a notice to BCCI on a petition by Chennai Super Kings. CSK challenged the order of Justice Lodha Committee suspending it from the Indian Premier League over 2013 betting scam involving its top official Gurunath Meiyappan.

A division bench, comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice T.S. Sivagnanam, is looking after the case.

In its petition, Chennai-based Indian Cements Ltd, owner of Chennai Super Kings (CSK), also sought a stay on the committee’s last month order.

It contended that the committee’s order was against fundamental principles of natural justice and a fair hearing.

Dhoni-led CSK and Rajasthan Royals were on July 14 suspended for two years from the League following 2013 betting scam involving their top officials Meiyappan and Raj Kundra.

Son-in-law of the then BCCI chief N Srinivasan, Meiyappan, a former Team Principal of CSK, and Kundra, co-owner of Jaipur IPL that runs Rajasthan Royals (RR), were suspended for life from any matches conducted by BCCI.

The punishments were handed down by a three-member panel headed by former CJI R M Lodha which was asked by the Supreme Court to decide the quantum of punishments after finding them guilty of betting.

India Cements, in its petition, had contended that imposing punishment on the franchise (CSK) without going into the charges or the offence committed was against the principles of natural justice and a fair hearing.

The court adjourned the hearing to next Thursday.
