Kolkata:The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will take the final decision on Abhijit Kale bribery issue on June 2 after another meeting of its disciplinary committee in Kolkata.

Disclosing this, Board sources said that the three-member disciplinary committee constituted to investigate the matter would meet at a city five star hotel on the day before announcing the much-awaited final verdict.

All members of the committee - BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya, and Board vice-presidents Kamal Morarka and Ranbir Singh Mahendra - will attend the meeting.

The Board's decision on the biggest scandal to rock Indian cricket since the betting controversy has been delayed as Morarka was abroad on a personal trip.

He also failed to attend the May 15 meeting when the committee concluded its hearing on the case which came to light in mid-November following complaints lodged by two selectors Pranab Roy and Kiran More that Kale had offered Rs 10 lakh to each of them to buy a place in the Australia-boundIndian team last year.

Based on the complaints, the Board suspended Kale and appointed chairman of the Bar Council of India, D V Subba Rao as inquiry commissioner.

On receiving Rao's report, the disciplinary committee framed charges against the cricketer and issued a show cause to him.
