Kolkata, Mar 28 (ANI): Dalmiya filed a criminal case against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) accusing it of using false affidavits against him.

The case was filed on Friday in the Calcutta High Court.

BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah refused to respond on the issue by saying that the Board required some time.

Earlier, Jagmohan Dalmiya had charged the BCCI of misappropriation of funds subject to Rs 240 crores in a television rights deal.

Dalimya according to the BCCI always reimbursed his personal telephone bills.

Dalmiya was arrested by the Mumbai Crime Branch on March 26 and later released on bail. The crime branch has accused Dalmiya of misappropriation of funds to the tune of Rs 2.9 crore. It was also found by the crime branch that Dalmiya diverted funds to other expenses including payment of personal phone bills, which was meant for legal fees.

The case against Dalmiya is about a bank account at Bhowanipore in West Bengal. This account with the Indian Overseas Bank was opened when India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka jointly hosted the cricket World Cup in 1996. (ANI)
