Lalit Modi, the suspended Indian Premier League commissioner, will have to appear before the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) disciplinary committee, probing alleged financial irregularities during the T20 tournament.

Modi failed to get a reprieve from the inquiry after the Bombay High Court dismissed his appeal challenging the probe on Tuesday.

A division bench of justice Ranjana Desai and justice Rajesh Katkar dismissed Modi’s appeal challenging the earlier order of a single judge.

Meanwhile, Modi has appealed to the ministry of External Affairs against its decision to revoke his passport for alleged foreign exchange violations.

Modi’s lawyer, Mehmood Abdi, said his client had filed an appeal before the chief passport officer challenging revocation of his passport by Mumbai’s regional passport office which had revoked his passport on March 3 this year following the enforcement directorate’s probe into financial irregularities.
