New Delhi:The Supreme Court has adjourned the case filed by former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi for the reconstitution of the disciplinary committee till November 11.
Modi's high-profile lawyer Ram Jethmalani had wanted the case to be adjourned since there was no settlement till now between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Modi.
The Court had suggested in the last hearing that even if three existing members of the committee continue the proceedings, let them not take part in the Annual General Meeting (AGM) meeting which will take action on the report.
Jethmalani had informed the court that in his personal capacity he would try for some compromise to settle the issue between BCCI & Modi and if no compromise was reached, the case would be taken up on October 27.
The BCCI, on the other hand, is no mood to offer or take olive branch from the Modi camp.
"It is a fact-finding and an internal committee. We cannot have external members in it," BCCI's counsel and senior advocate C S Sundaram had told a Supreme Court Bench, comprising Justices J M Panchal and Gyan Sudha Mishra, which wanted the Board to explore the possibility of reconstituting the disciplinary committee.
