The three-member panel headed by former Chief Justice of India, RM Lodha, will, on Tuesday, announce the quantum of punishment for Gurunath Meiyappan, Raj Kundra and the teams they were part of - Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals respectively - for their alleged involvement in the IPL 2013 corruption scandal.
The Lodha committee was appointed on January 22 by the Supreme Court to decide on the punishment for Kundra, Gurunath and their respective franchises. Kundra and Gurunath had been found guilty of betting by the Supreme Court. The committee had been given six months to pronounce its decision.
Gurunath had been chargesheeted in the IPL 2013 corruption scandal and though Kundra wasn't among those chargesheeted, he was found guilty by the first Supreme Court-appointed Justice Mukul Mudgal committee of betting on IPL matches.
The court had also directed the Lodha panel, which also includes former judges Ashok Bhan and RV Raveendran, to make recommendations and suggest amendments to the processes followed by the BCCI. The panel is likely to seek more time to announce its findings on the restructuring of BCCI administration. Senior BCCI functionaries are likely to discuss the possible ramifications of the Lodha panel findings in a conference call on Sunday.
