IPL Spot Fixing Scam: BCCI supplies documents to probe panel

The work of the two-member committee, appointed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to look into the affairs of Gurunath Meiyappan, Chennai Super Kings, Raj Kundra and Rajasthan Royals, has formally begun.

Justice T Jayaram Chouta and Justice R Balasubramanian have been supplied with all the relevant documents to kick-start their probe.

As a first step, the two judges have decided between them that Justice Chouta will be the chairman of the committee. The Bangalore-based judge is apparently senior the two. Balasubramanian is based in Chennai.

On Saturday, a BCCI official and its legal team met Justice Choutain Bangalore and supplied all the documents, including the complaint papers against the concerned persons. It will be up to the two committee members on how to go about in the case.

The BCCI is awaiting a formal communication from the committee if it wants to have an office in Bangalore and if it would require any staff for the for the purpose of inquiry. More clarity will emerge once the two meet which is likely to happen on June 21.

PAPERS HANDED OVER“We’ve met Justice Chouta in Bangalore on Saturday and have given him all the relevant papers for his reference.

“We’re awaiting his next step. Being the senior of the two, Justice Chouta, we understand, will be the chairman of the committee. After going through the papers, they can call anyone they want. It is purely their discretion,” said Ratnakar Shetty, BCCI’s general manager, cricket development.

No time frame has been given for the committee to come out with its findings. The BCCI will take care of all the expenditure that the committee may incur during the inquiry.
