In Indian Premier League spot fixing scam, Chennai Super Kings franchise has filed a petition in Madras High Court against Justice Lodha Committee order of suspending the team for two years. On the petition, Honourable High Court has issued notices to BCCI. After ordering notice the case was adjourned to next thursday. However the plea for stay of the order was turned down by the Court stating that it has to hear the concerned parties before passing any orders on merit.
It is alleged in the petition that the punishment imposed was against the principles of natural justice and a fair hearing was not given before imposing the same.
Earlier the honourable Supreme Court had appointed Lodha committe to enquire into the issue of spot-fixing and Gurunath Meiyappan was found involved in the same. But concerned parties claim that the issue was of betting and not 'fixing' and hence the Committee erred in its decision.
