SC leaves it to Justice Lodha panel for call

New Delhi:The Supreme Court on Friday left it to a panel headed by former Chief Justice of India R M Lodha to consider the feasibility of opening and looking into the sealed envelope submitted by Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee containing names of some players allegedly involved in IPL spot-fixing.

The apex court said it would be for the three-member panel headed by Justice Lodha, which is considering administrative reforms in BCCI, to take a call on the issue keeping in mind the "image and reputation" of the persons whose names are in the sealed envelope.

"If the Committee wants to look into it without affecting the image and reputation of some persons, it can consider it," a bench comprising Justices T S Thakur and F M I Kalifulla said while declining to go on its own on the plea of Aditya Verma, Secretary, Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB).
