The Supreme Court today deferred to the second week of January next year the hearing on a petition filed by suspended IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi seeking reconstitution of BCCI disciplinary committee probing allegations of financial irregularities against him.

A bench headed by Justice JM Panchal agreed with the plea of senior advocate Ram Jethmalani seeking adjournment after he said that the BCCI has decided to go into the jurisdictional aspects of the disciplinary committee.

Modi had contended that the disciplinary committee had no jurisdiction to go into the issue.

The disciplinary committee had on Tuesday decided not to go ahead with the proceedings against Modi till the issue of jurisdiction was decided.
