NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court of New Delhi has asked the Justice Mudgal committee to investigate the IPL corruption issue, and in particular the 13 names mentioned in the sealed envelope, with the assistance of other investigators, ARY News has learnt.
Mukul Mudgal has communicated to the court his willingness to take up the investigation and has been asked to specify the terms and modalities on April 29, the next date of hearing.
The development suggests the court will not, at this point, entertain the BCCI's proposed three-member inquiry panel, which included Ravi Shastri, former judge JN Patel and former director of the CBI, RK Raghavan. The Cricket Association of Bihar, the complainants in the case, had raised objections to the BCCI panel during the arguments on Tuesday.
The Mudgal committee was set up by the court in October last year to investigate the fixing allegations that arose during the IPL's 2013 season.
It had submitted its report in February this year; a report that included a sealed envelope – to be seen only by the judges – with the names of 13 people who, the committee said, should be further investigated. That is what the court has now asked the Mudgal committee to investigate.
