Breaking News : SC asks BCCI, Modi to work out compromise
Advertisement
#1
The Supreme Court has given the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and former Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman and commissioner Lalit Modi six days to decide on the composition of the disciplinary committee probing the alleged financial irregularities.

The court also offered two suggestions for the compromise: to increase the size of the existing committee or for the three members forming the present committee to stay away from the league's governing council, which will look into the disciplinary committee's report on Modi.

Modi's legal counsel, Ram Jethmalani, had suggested that he wanted a compromise formula.

The disciplinary committee presently consists of IPL chairman Chirayu Amin, BCCI VP Arun Jaitley and the president of the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association Jyotiraditya Scindia. Modi wants Jaitley and Amin not be a part of the panel as he fears bias on their part.

If a compromise is not reached, then the apex court would resume hearing on the matter. Yesterday, the BCCI had told the Supreme Court that it was not possible to reconstitute its panel.

The Supreme Court pointed out that BCCI president Shashank Manohar had withdrawn from the panel. If that was the case, then why cannot the BCCI reconstitute the panel by changing another member.

The BCCI has also refuted reports that it had reached an understanding with Modi. Media reports quoted Modi's counsel Mehmud Abdi, stating that probe panel member Arun Jaitley and another of Modi's lawyer Ram Jethmalani met last night to work out an understanding.

BCCI's chief administrative officer Professor Ratnakar Shetty said in a statement: "Mr Arun Jaitley and Mr Ram Jethmalani met yesterday night for some other matter not connected to BCCI. The statement made by Mr Mohd Abdi, General Counsel and Constituted Attorney of Mr L K Modi, regarding some understanding being reached is totally false and BCCI denies the same."
