On a PIL seeking a joint probe by CBI, Income Tax Department and Enforcement Directorate into the alleged match fixing and betting in 2013 IPL matches, a bench of Justices Abhay Oka and PD Naik asked police to submit on April 27 the progress report of investigations made by them.
The bench also asked investigation officer Nandkumar Gopale to appear in person on the next date of hearing on April 27.
The court asked police to inform on the same day what steps it had taken to trace the accused in the case.
In its affidavit, police said that it had arrested 22 accused, including bookies, in this case, and said they would make further investigations and file supplementary charge sheet.
The petitioner, activist Ketan Tirodkar, prayed that CBI be directed to register a case of cheating against players and bookies who had allegedly developed nexus with vested interests for "fixing matches or promoting betting in IPL matches".
