The Supreme Court on Friday refused to hand over transcripts of the statements given by former Board president N Srinivasan, Indian skipper M S Dhoni and Indian Premier League (IPL) Chief Operating Officer Sunder Raman to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), two days after cricket’s governing body in country had filed a petition in the apex court for the same.
The tapes carry recorded statements that the trio gave to SC-appointed Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee to probe IPL betting and fixing scandal that erupted during the previous edition of the cash- rich league.
The two-judge bench of Justice A.K. Patnaik and Justice J.S. Khehar told the BCCI lawyers that they will examine if handing over the transcripts is required when the IPL scam case comes up for hearing again on April 16.
