Judgment Day : Lalit Modi's fate to be decided in Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Monday will be pronouncing its judgment on a petition filed by formet IPL chairman Lalit Modi.

A two judge bench of Justice J M Panchal and Justice H L Gokhale will pass the orders after all the attempts of a possible settlement between Modi and BCCI failed.

Modi had sought the removal of Arun Jaitley and former IPL administrator Chirayu Amin from the disciplinary committee probing charges of financial irregularities against him.

Modi in his petition alleged conflict of interest against Jaitley and Amin. He suffered a setback when Mumbai High Court turned down his plea.

Unwilling to give up, he moved the Supreme Court and pulled off a coup of sorts by persuading the BJP leadership to allow noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani to take up cudgels for him in the apex court althoug both Jaitley and Jethmalani are from BJP.

The Supreme Court however had told BCCI and Modi to come to a compromise on the issue.However, the two sides failed to do so.
