BCCI meet: Modi might be made an outcast

Thiruvananthapuram: The dice was heavily loaded against Lalit Modi as the Cricket Board's (BCCI) Working Committee has more or less decided to issue a show cause notice to the Rajasthan Cricket Association chief. The show cause notice, likely to be issued on Friday on the concluding day of the two-day meeting, would ask Modi to explain as to why action should not be taken against him for suppressing facts regarding his past which allegedly made him unqualified to hold any office. BCCI Vice President Kamal Morarka had alleged that Modi was convicted in the USA in 1985 on charges of drug trafficking and assault and therefore should be removed from the Board. Heavier punishmentMorarka had raised the issue at the meeting today, and President Ranbir Singh Mahendra had been authorised to make a decision on the same, according to Board sources. Sources said that Modi, who was away in Europe and did not attend the meeting, might be handed a similar or heavier punishment to that slapped on former president I S Bindra in 2001 February for indulging in 'anti-Board' activities. Bindra, President of the Punjab Cricket Association, was suspended for two-years and debarred from representing the PCA in all BCCI meetings for issuing series of statements in the media in the post-match fixing saga.
