Court to pass order on Modi case today

Modi’s lawyer Virag Tulzhapurkar told the court on Wednesday that his client can’t expect “impartial and honest” decision from disciplinary committee which will conduct enquiry against him.

The committee is going to meet on July 16 and has summoned Modi to appear. But Modi has sought an independent “outside” body for conducting inquiry instead of the present disciplinary panel of Arun Jaitley, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Chirayu Amin, IPL’s interim Chairman. “Decision of this committee is a foregone conclusion,” said Tulzhapurkar.

He alleged that actions of BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan “were actuated by bias against Modi”, as the latter had made allegations against Srinivasan regarding having a stake in IPL franchise team Chennai Super Kings.

Similarly, Amin, a member of the committee and acting Chairman of IPL, too had a personal bias against Modi, said advocate Tulzhapurkar.
