New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday dismissed the petition by earlier Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi seeking an independent inquiry into the accusations of financial irregularities against him.
An apex court bench of Justice JM Panchal and Justice HL Gokhale said that the mere apprehension of an inquiry committee being unfair could not be a ground to seek out investigates by an independent tribunal. There should be a ‘real danger’ of bias in an inquiry, the court said.
The committee has been trusted with the task to probe the allegations of financial irregularities against him.
Modi had challenged the composition of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) disciplinary committee set up to investigate allegations against him.
