New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday appointed its former judge Justice DK Jain as the ombudsman for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Besides, the court also appointed Lieutenant General Ravi Thodge as the third member of the Committee of Administrators (CoA).
With this, Justice DK Jain became the first court-appointed ombudsman for the BCCI.
The newly appointed ombudsman will look into the controversy over comments made by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul at a talk show.
The duo was suspended from the Indian team pending inquiry on January 11, this year. The new ombudsman will now go through the materials in detail and arrive at a decision.
