Suspended IPS officer G Sampath Kumar has approached the Supreme Court for appointing a Special Investigation Team to probe the Indian Premier League betting and spot-fixing scandal. The top court is already hearing an inquiry committee report that records the alleged involvement of some top Board of Control for Cricket in India officials and national-level players.

The probe panel was headed by former judge Justice Mukul Mudgal and included Additional Solicitor General L. Nageswara Rao and senior advocate Nilay Dutta. This panel, appointed in October last year, submitted its reports to the Supreme Court on February 10. The court has already suspended BCCI president N. Srinivasan and refused to share with Board lawyers transcripts of tapes allegedly containing conversation between bookies, BCCI officials and India captain MS Dhoni.

Former Tamil Nadu top cop Sampath Kumar conducted the probe into the IPL scam but was transferred and later suspended without any reasons.
