Mortaza, captain of the Dhaka Gladiators, had told his franchise earlier this week that he had been asked to inform which matches he would play in and pass on other news in exchange for a cut of the spot-fixing earnings.
The committee to look into the controversy will be headed by BCB senior vice-president Mahbub Anam. The other members are chairman of the BPL governing council Gazi Ashraf Hossain, BPL governing council secretary and chairman of the BCB disciplinary committee Sirajuddin Mohammed Alamgir and acting CEO of BCB Nizam Uddin Chowdhury.
"We have a zero tolerance policy towards match-fixing and that is why it was important for us to have a detailed inquiry into the matter," Hossain said. "We are also working closely on this issue with the ACSU officials present in Dhaka for the BPL and the ICC."
Mortaza and his franchise's manager met ACSU representative Howard Beer and the BPL chairman on Friday to provide them more information about the approach.
