High Court dismisses Modi's appeal against BCCI inquiry

Mumbai:

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday dismissed an appeal filed by Lalit Modi against an earlier order of the single bench asking the BCCI to initiate an inquiry into alleged financial irregularities by the former IPL chairman.


The Board of Control for Cricket in India had in December last year formed a disciplinary committee to probe into the allegations of financial irregularities during Modi's tenure as chairman of the cash rich Twenty20 league.

On March 4, a single judge of the High Court had dismissed Modi's petition against the inquiry and had directed BCCI's DC to initiate proceedings against him.

Modi challenged this order before the division bench of Justices Ranjana Desai and R G Ketkar who dismissed his appeal on Tuesday.

Modi had challenged the legality of the three-member disciplinary committee comprising Arun Jaitley, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Chirayu Amin stating that the three-member panel did not have the BCCI General Body's mandate.

Modi's counsel on Tuesday requested the court to direct BCCI to defer its inquiry for two weeks by when an appeal would be filed in the Apex court.

"We are not going to pass any orders to BCCI. They (BCCI) have considered and deferred the inquiry until now. Let that understanding be considered," Justice Desai remarked.
