IPL Scam: Supreme Court Names Raj Kundra, Sundar Raman Among Those Probed

New Delhi, Nov 14: The Supreme Court on Friday disclosed the names of Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra and former Indian Premier League CEO Sundar Raman among 13 who were investigated by the court-appointed inquiry panel for corruption in the cash-rich T20 competition. So far, the court had revealed the names of BCCI president-in-exile N. Srinivasan and his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan. All four will be served notices to explain their standpoint. The next hearing will be on November 24.

The Supreme Court is examining a probe report submitted by a panel headed by retired judge Justice Mukul Mudgal. The panel had submitted its second and final report to the Supreme Court on November 3. The first hearing was on November 10, during which the special bench called the case as "high voltage" and was reluctant to give N.Srinivasan a clean chit before a thorough probe.

The Supreme Court had revealed the names of N. Srinivasan and his son-in--law Meiyappan when Justice Mudgal submitted his first report in February this year. Srinivasan was stood down as BCCI president till the IPL probe was over. Meiyappan, who was the team principal of Chennai Super Kings, was indicted for betting and sharing team information.

It is not clear whether Srinivasan will be able to contest the BCCI elections. The Board AGM, which was scheduled on November 20, has once again been deferred by four weeks. The Board AGM is normally held before September 30 every year and this is the first time in its history that it has been put off twice.

Srinivasan, currently ICC chairman, is seeking another term as Board chief. According to reports, former BCCI president Sharad Pawar is keen to contest and Friday's events could have far-reaching consequences on the elections. This is East Zone's turn to nominate a president and till Wednesday, Srinivasan apparently had the support of at least four of the six units.
