The panel had gone into the charges against India Cements Ltd, owners of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings, its former Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan, son-in-law of BCCI's President-in-exile N Srinivasan and Raj Kundra, co-owner of Rajasthan Royals.
    
The panel was set up by BCCI and IPL Governing Council after surfacing of the betting and fixing scandal.
