The Supreme Court has declined to fork up the audio recordings to the lawyers for the Board of Control for the Cricket in India. Those recordings were made by the skipper of the Chennai Super Kings Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the just ousted president of the BCCI N Srinivasan and the COO of Indian Premier League Sunder Raman. The three logrollers has ridden out on the rail in front of the Court assigned probe committee, led by retired Justice Mukul Mudgal.
The two-judge bench of Justice A K Patnaik and Justice J S Khehar assured the BCCI advocates on Friday to look into the matter, if turning over the transcripts is needed for the vital hearing of the IPL corruption outrage again on April 16.
The BCCI, had lodged a petition in the Supreme Court that was looking for the impeachment of Dhoni, Sunder Raman and Srinivasan in front of the Mudgal committee, formed last year October.
The Mudgal Committee had enquired the IPL corruption outrage for four months and submitted its reports to the two-judge Supreme Court bench on February 10. In addition to these two reports, the committee additionally endured a sealed envelope, which included ‘many allegations of sporting fraud’.
There are many reports, hovering on the media, which connects Dhoni with the bookies.
The BCCI lawyers hunted transcripts of the deposition and reason behind this was the desire to argue their case better on April 16.
It is assumed that the final order will be taken at the next hearing.
Dhoni has already been impeached for hiding the actual identity of the son-in-law of Srinivasan, Gurunath Meiyappan by the petitioner’s counsel. Whereas, Dhoni claimed that Meiyappan was just an ‘enthusiast’, later it has been revealed that Meiyappan is one of the CSK officials. Later, Meiyappan has been impeached by the committee for betting and sharing insider information.
Srinivasan has already been forced to step down from his post of the president of the BCCI on March 28. Sunil Gavaskar (for the IPL issues) and Shivlal Yadav (for other issues) have been assigned as the interim presidents by the Court, later.
The Court wants Gavaskar to take action against the COO Sunder Raman also, who has been involved with the IPL since 20008, has also been doubted in the corruption scam.
