In the dock for slapping his India teammate S Sreesanth, Harbhajan Singh on Friday appeared for another disciplinary hearing before the BCCI-appointed Commissioner Sudhir Nanavati who said the probe is over and he will submit his final report on on Monday.
"All the proceeding of the investigation is over and now I don't need to talk to any player or official in this case. I'm satisfied with the answers of both Sreesanth and Harbhajan. I've all the evidence that I need to prepare the report," Nanavati told reporters after the hearing.
He said both the players were very supportive and co-operating during the proceeding.
"I talked to Harbhajan for one hour and 15 minutes and 30 minutes with Sreesanth. They were quite friendly during the hearing," the advocate said.
Mumbai Indians' stand-in skipper Harbhajan slapped Kings XI Punjab pacer Sreesanth after the April 25 IPL match in Mohali, which saw the off-spinner being banned from the remainder of the IPL, apart from losing nearly Rs 3 crore of match fee.
BCCI slapped him a showcause notice for his behaviour before appointing Nanavati to probe the incident.
The hearing took place at the Gujarat Law Society building where Nanavati arrived at around 1400 hrs, followed by BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah. The hearing started at 1430 hrs after Harbhajan arrived, while Sreesanth came to the place around 1530 hrs.
