Probe against Brijesh Patel stayed

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court on Thursday stayed an inquiry by the Registrar of Societies against former India cricket player and honorary secretary of the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) Brijesh Patel and another KSCA member. The petitioners, Mr. Patel and Ramadhyani, said two other KSCA members, V. Nataraj and another person, had filed a complaint before the Registrar of Societies alleging certain irregularities in the KSCA.

The Registrar on December 10, 2008 appointed Siraj Ahmed Chida as the Enquiry Officer to look into complaints of irregularities in the KSCA. Mr. Patel said he was in the United States in December 2008 when the notices were issued and, therefore, he could not attend the inquiry.

He said the Inquiry Officer had appointed another person to look into complaints against him.

He and Mr. Ramadhyani urged the court to stay the December 10, 2008 order of the Registrar.
