Supreme Court to hear Swamy’s plea for lifting ban on CSK

FROM THE TIME the Chennai Super Kings got suspended from the IPL by the Supreme court for reasons related to betting issues from its owner, many experts, fans and politicians have voiced their opinion about the issue. 

The Super Kings were handed the suspension after the betting scams involved their co-owner Gurunath Meiyappan. Since then, many fans have expressed their anger and disappointment towards the Supreme Court and demanded their decision to be reversed.

Today, the court has agreed to hear the plea of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy who has challenged Justice Lodha Committee's orders. 

The panel will include Chief Justice TS Thakur and Justice UU Lalit and they will come up with a date for hearing the plea of Swamy. 

As reported by PTI, 

"A fraud has been committed on this court as the entire litigation initiated by CAB was funded by Lalit Modi," Swamy said, claiming that he agrees with almost 99 per cent of the finding of Lodha panel except the banning of CSK.

Swamy also said that his earlier plea was wrongly rejected by the Madras high-court.
