The Supreme Court on Tuesday insisted that action must be taken against N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, and felt the best way to ensure this would be to keep Srinivasan out of it.
The Supreme Court gave Srinivasan the following four options if he did not want the court to issue adverse orders:
1) Srinivasan should withdraw from BCCI
2) New committee should be formed to take action against those named by the Mudgal panel
3) BCCI governing council should take action
4) A committee of former judges should decide on the impending BCCI elections as well as other matters
Srinivasan was accused of taking no action against Meiyappan and now the apex court wants the BCCI to spell out how the former CSK official should be punished. "Want action against Meiyappan. What can be done to decide quantum of punishment? We don't want to bypass BCCI, announce punitive measures," the Court said on Tuesday.
The Supreme Court has also given time to the BCCI till 2 pm to come up with solutions and the proposed action against Chennai Super Kings and and Meiyappan.
In the previous hearing on Monday, the apex court had put the onus on Srinivasan and talked about his conflict of interest. The court observed that it was difficult for it to accept that the involvement of Meiyappan - a team official of Chennai Super Kings - in betting during IPL 2013 did not result in conflict of interest.
