New Delhi: The Supreme Court rejected N. Srinivasan’s plea for reinstatement as BCCI president, saying he cannot be allowed to take charge till he gets a clean chit from the Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee, that is probing him and 12 players in the IPL betting and spot-fixing scandal.
Expressing displeasure over the slow probe, the court directed the panel to complete its investigations in two months, and allowed it to file an interim report on Mr Srinivasan or any other office-bearer under its scrutiny.
A bench of Justices T.S. Thakur and F.M. Ibrahim Kalifulla rejected Mr Srinivasan’s plea that he should be allowed to function as BCCI chief as the board’s AGM is due at the end of this month.
