Supreme Court Proposed 3- Member Panel to Inquire into IPL Spot-Fixing Scandal
The Supreme Court of India proposed panel headed by former Punjab and Haryana Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal to examine the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
The Supreme Court of India proposed a three-member panel on 7 October 2013 headed by former Punjab and Haryana Chief Justice Mukul Mudgal to examine the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
The other members of the panel are senior advocate and Additional Solicitor General N Nagehswar Rao and Assam Cricket Association member Nilay Dutta.
Objective of the panel
The panel would conduct an independent inquiry into the allegations and examine the IPL spot-fixing scandal. It will submit its report to the Supreme Court.
The bench is headed by Justice A K Patnaik and Justice J S Kehar proposed this panel while hearing the cross appeals filed by BCCI and Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) challenging Bombay High Court's order which had declared BCCI's probe panel in the scandal as illegal.
The Supreme Court also rejected BCCI's suggestion for setting up a Special Purpose Committee (SPC) comprising senior politician Arun Jaitley and Dutta.
