Kolkata: With betting charges against Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra giving a new twist to the IPL scandal, a rattled BCCI was on Thursday forced to convene yet another Emergent Working Committee meeting in New Delhi on Monday to take stock of the crisis which has grown with each passing day.
     
Hours after it came to light that Kundra has allegedly confessed to betting in the IPL matches during his 11-hour interrogation by the Delhi Police, the BCCI said the issue would come up for discussion in the Working Committee meeting and strict action will be considered if required.
     
"Raj Kundra issue will be discussed in the Working Committee, which is going to be held on June 10 and after we hear the details, if it demands any strict action, we will look into it," BCCI's Working Group chief Jagmohan Dalmiya told a press conference.
     
The raging IPL scandal has shown no signs of subsiding with more embarrassing details tumbling out every passing day with Kundra's confession being the latest.
     
In the brief press conference, Dalmiya also made a few announcements regarding the vacant positions in the Board and about the constitution of the inquiry Commission.
     
The veteran administrator said that Baroda Cricket Association's Sanjay Patel will be the new BCCI Secretary while the post of the treasurer will be announced later.


    
He also said that no BCCI member will be part of the inquiry Commission and the two retired High Court judges T Jayaram Chouta and R Balasubramaniam will form the two-member commission to probe allegations against BCCI chief N Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and CSK.
     
Both justices Chouta and Balasubramaniam were members of the original panel, which also had BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale as the third member.
     
The Committee had to be re-constituted following Jagdale's resignation. Dalmiya was given the responsibility to choose the third member.
