Jagmohan Dalmiya arrested in Mumbai, granted bailMarch 26th, 2008 - 4:57 pm ICT by admin
Mumbai, Mar 26 (ANI): Former International Cricket Council (ICC) and Board of Cricket Control India (BCCI) chief Jagmohan Dalmiya was arrested by the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of the Mumbai Police here on Wednesday and was granted bail almost immediately.
Dalmiya has been accused of misappropriating 29.6 million rupees and the EOW found him guilty of misusing BCCI funds during the 1996 World Cup.
The crime branch of Mumbai Police had filed a charge sheet against Dalmiya in the Sessions Court, holding him guilty of cheating (Section 420 of Indian Penal Code), criminal breach of trust (Section 408 of IPC), and conspiracy (Section 120B of IPC).
Time and again, Dalmiya had rebutted the allegations as an old game played by his adversaries.
According to sources, the case dates back to account number 1223 opened at the Bhowanipore (West Bengal) branch of Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) when India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka jointly hosted the 1996 World Cup. Dalmiya operated this account along with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). (ANI)
