The report was submitted in a sealed envelope to the two-judge SC bench of Justice TS Thakur and Ibrahim Kalifulla who are hearing the case of IPL spot fixing. The bench will take cognizance of the report on 10 November 2014.
The Mudgal committee was appointed by the Supreme Court to investigate the fixing and betting scandal in the cricket Indian Premier League (IPL). The probe committee also included Additional Solicitor General L Nageswara Rao, advocate Nilay Datta, Deputy DG (Narcotics Control Bureau) BB Mishra and former India captain Sourav Ganguly.
Earlier, prominent IPL players S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan were arrested on allegations of spot-fixing. The former Chennai Super Kings Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan and Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh were also behind the bars on allegations of betting during the sixth edition of the league. At present, they are all out on bail.
This betting and spot-fixing scandal forced N Srinivasan to step down as the President of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). He stepped down after Supreme Court asked him to step down on his own to ensure a fair inquiry into allegations of betting in the Indian Premier League.
