New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it was not convinced that separate probes by Mumbai and Delhi police into IPL spot-fixing scandal were creating hurdles in the investigation that has "wide ramifications".

"So far, you (petitioner) have not been able to satisfy us that the separate investigation (by Mumbai and Delhi police) is creating trouble," a bench of Justices Gyan Sudha Misra and Madan B Lokur said.

The court was hearing a PIL seeking transfer of probe into the IPL spot-fixing scandal by Delhi and Mumbai police to CBI to unearth larger conspiracy and insulate the investigation from highly influential persons and politicians.

The bench, asked Sharmila Ghuge, an educationist in a Mumbai law college who moved the court, to file an additional affidavit after observing the probe being carried out by the police agencies. "The investigation has got wide ramifications. You cannot go on monitoring it on daily or rather, hourly basis. Give them some time to investigate," the bench said and fixed the matter for hearing on July 23.

CBI should unearth the huge racket behind the illegalities and take the strongest possible action against all masterminds behind such acts, the bench observed.
