Suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) chief Lalit Modi moved Supreme Court. Modi sought replacement of two members from the disciplinary committee, which is investigation accusations of financial indiscretion during the IPL.
Modi filed a petition in the apex court challenging the July 15 judgement of the Bombay High Court, which dismissed his plea to stay the proceedings by the committee. He sought removal of Arun Jaitley and Chirayu Amin from three-member committee, which also has Jyotiraditya Scindya, contending that they are likely to be biased against him. Modi has challenged his suspension.
Modi had contended before the High Court that BCCI secretary N Srinivasan had launched “persecution” against him on the basis of media reports and complaints made by rank outsiders and “meddlesome interlopers” who are neither members of the Board, nor administrators.
In the petition before the apex Court, Modi maintained that there should be a free and fair inquiry in all the allegations.
SC reserves verdict on Muthiah's petition
The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its verdict on the petition filed by ex-BCCI president A C Muthiah challenging the amendment in the Board’s regulations to exclude IPL and T-20 tournaments from its purview allegedly to favour its secretary N Srinivasan who owns the Chennai Super Kings.
