" BCCI's currently defunct president Srinivasan was removed from his post by the Supreme Court in March until his name was cleared from the scandal."
Chennai, Aug 20 - The Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee probing the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) spot fixing and betting scandal Tuesday denied having investigated International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman N. Srinivasan or his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, contrary to some media reports.

The committee had met here Aug 15-16 and interacted with its investigative team and other authorities vis-à-vis the probe.

A joint statement from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry and the secretary to the probe committee Vidushpat Singhania also denied reports stating that the investigation team will travel to England to question the Indian team players now preparing for the ODI series.

The Committee would like to clarify that neither the Committee nor its members interacted with Mr. Srinivasan or Mr. Meiyappan on 15-16 August 2014 in Chennai or at any other time during the second leg of its investigation ordered by the Hon'ble Supreme Court on 16.5.2014, said the statement.

The Committee or any of its members also have no intention of travelling outside the country for any interaction with the players, contrary to some speculations in the media. The Committee is fully alive of the fact that any interaction with the players during a series may disturb their poise and concentration.

BCCI's currently defunct president Srinivasan was removed from his post by the Supreme Court in March until his name was cleared from the scandal.

The committee is to submit its report to the apex court by the end of this month.
