Dalmiya expulsion case: BCCI moves Supreme CourtNovember 21st, 2008 - 2:52 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Nov.21 (ANI): The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the Calcutta High Court’’s directive to initiate criminal proceedings against six of its top officials for filing false affidavits that led to the expulsion of Jagmohan Dalmiya from the BCCI.
The High Court had found former president Sharad Pawar and five others guilty of perjury in a case relating to misappropriation of funds by ex-BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya.
The Calcutta High Court had on November 12 directed initiation of criminal proceedings against BCCI President Sashank Manohar, former Board President Sharad Pawar and four top officials for filing false affidavits.
Justice Nadira Pathariya passed the order eight months after Dalmiya, a former BCCI president, moved a case of perjury against Pawar and the BCCI officials and pressed for criminal proceedings against them for allegedly producing false documents in court. (ANI)
