BCCI to approach HC on Dalmiya

Mumbai: The legal scuffle between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and former BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya could get more intense in the coming weeks.

BCCI has confirmed that it will go for an appeal before the Division Bench of the High Court on Monday, after the Calcutta High Court stayed Dalmiya’s suspension.

Meanwhile, Dalmiya, following the HC's verdict, has filed a perjury case (under section 340 of the criminal code) against the BCCI.

Board President Sharad Pawar, secretary Niranjan Shah and Shashank Manohar were part of the committee that had accused Dalmiya of misappropriation of funds.

Charges were levelled against Dalmiya for transferring funds from PILCOM account to the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) in an unconstitutional manner.

PILCOM was a joint committee set up by India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka for the 1996 World Cup. The revenue generated was to be shared by all the three boards.

BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah parried all tricky queries raised by the media at the Board’s headquarters in Mumbai.

When asked what would be the Board’s plan of action, now that a case of perjury has been filed, Shah feigned ignorance. "I have no knowledge of this. We will have to consult our legal advisors," he said.

Shah dead-batted questions related to the verdict. He remarked, "I don’t want to give any judgement on the verdict of the honourable court. It is not in my jurisdiction."
