The Bombay High Court today rejected the petition filed by suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) Chairman and Commissioner Lalit Modi seeking reconstitution of the disciplinary committee of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to hear allegations against him relating to irregularities in the conduct of the T20 League.
The High Court said that it was not going into the merits of Mr. Modi’s petition but disciplinary committee itself can decide on the reconstitution when it meets tomorrow.
Mr. Modi had said that he wanted the committee of independent persons and not of those who are the members of BCCI, as they would be biased against him.
The BCCI’s disciplinary committee comprises interim IPL Chairman Chirayu Amin, Arun Jaitley and Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Mr. Modi was slapped with three show-cause notices after his suspension by the BCCI and has replied to all three notices.
