NEW DELHI (AP) — India’s Supreme Court has ordered a thorough investigation into corruption in the Indian Premier League, including the role of suspended Board of Control for Cricket in India president Narainswami Srinivasan.
The court asked Justice Mukul Mudgal to conduct an in-depth investigation after an initial probe by a three-member team headed by the retired high court judge found Chennai Super Kings team principal and Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan guilty of being in contact with illegal bookmakers.
The panel has been asked to submit its report by the end of August.
Though Srinivasan was not directly implicated, the Mudgal panel named him among 13 people who needed to be investigated.
The others were not named due to lack of evidence but it is speculated that it includes some current international players.
