Nanavati today came from Ahmedabad and submitted the report to the Chief Administrative Officer of the BCCI Prof Ratnakar Shetty here.

''The 15 days' deadline given to Nanavati to submit his report is over and he has given the report. It will now be given to the Disciplinary Committee. They will take a decision,'' Mr Shetty said after accepting the sealed envelope containing the report from Nanavati at the Board office.

''We may decide tomorrow when the committee is to meet as Mr Sharad Pawar is in town,'' he added.

Pawar heads the committee which has President-elect Shashank Manohar and Vice-President Chirayu Amin as the two other members.

Shetty, however, refused to comment on the possible action that can be taken against Harbhajan by the three-member Disciplinary Committee based on the Nanavati probe report.

''It is not proper for me to comment on it. It is up to the Disciplinary Committee to decide (on the issue),'' he said.

Meanwhile, Nanavati after handing over the 14-page report to Shetty said that his task was over and it was up to the Disciplinary Committee to act.

Nanavati further said that he was in no position to recommend punishment.

''I will not recommend any sort of punishment to the players as I have been appointed to inquire about the incident under rule 32 of the BCCI (which authorises the board president to appoint a commissioner to assist a disciplinary committee),'' Nanavati said, adding that ''this is a level-four offence (according to the ICC's code of conduct regulations) and if a player is found guilty, the quantum of sentence is ban on playing large number of matches or even for life time.''
