A criminal case is being heard against Meiyappan in the Bombay High Court.

The committee has also questioned former India captain Kris Srikkanth and IPL chief executive Sundar Raman and will meet BCCI's anti-corruption unit chief Ravi Sawani among others over the next few days.

So far, the three-man committee has questioned a number of people, including the three Rajasthan Royals players -- S Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Sidhharth Trivedi, while they have also met with the officials of Delhi and Mumbai police.
