The Justice Mukul Mudgal probe committee is likely to seek a two-month extension to submit its final report on the 2013 Indian Premier League match-fixing and betting scandal. The Supreme Court had set an August-end deadline for the panel to submit its report.
A special Supreme Court bench will hear the case on September 1. The duration of extension for the Mudgal panel is likely to be decided. On Friday, the inquiry committee submitted an interim report on the scandal in a sealed envelope. The envelope is expected to be open on Monday.
A number of issues will be discussed on Monday. Board of Control for Cricket in India's president-in-exile N. Srinivasan has pleaded the court to recall its order to stay away from Board activities. Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan has been indicted for betting in the scandal. Gurunath was the team principal of Chennai Super Kings till last year.
