The Delhi High Court on Monday allowed the BCCI to hold its special general meeting (SGM) in Chennai on Wednesday to consider the disciplinary committee’s report on the financial irregularities allegedly committed by the former IPL Commissioner, Lalit Modi.
Justice V.K. Shali set aside the trial court’s September 21 order, restraining the Board of Control for Cricket in India from holding its meeting.
The High Court also dismissed Mr. Modi’s cross-appeal against the lower court’s decision against an interim order on his petition challenging the appointment of Sanjay Patel and Jagmohan Dalmiya as BCCI functionaries by N. Srinivasan.
Rejecting his arguments against the appointment of Mr. Dalmiya and Mr. Patel, the court said Mr. Srinivasan remained BCCI president, and he also had some powers to appoint them. The BCCI had moved the High Court against the trial court’s order that restrained it from holding its SGM, contending that it had no jurisdiction to pass such an order as the SGM was to be held in Chennai.
