BCCI moves SC against HC order declaring probe panel illegal

BCCI on Monday approached the Supreme Court challenging Bombay high court’s order that held as illegal and unconstitutional the two-member probe panel constituted by it to look into spot-fixing and betting charges in the IPL tournament as illegal.

The Board sought immediate stay of the high court’s order while submitting that the panel was constituted according to rules and was legal.

In a severe blow to BCCI and its president-in-exile N Srinivasan, the High Court on July 30 that the two member commission was constituted in violation of the rules framed by the BCCI.
‘The (probe) Commission was not duly constituted and was contrary to and in violation of the provisions of Rules 2.2 and 3 of Section 6 of the Operational Rules (of BCCI),’ the high court had said and also rejected Srinivisan's plea for a stay on its order to enable him move a higher court in appeal.
