New Delhi: Suspended IPL chief Lalit Modi on Sunday claimed that the BCCI disciplinary committee, probing his alleged irregularities, has demanded recusal of his lawyers representing him in the case.

Till date it is Modi, who has been demanding recusal of Chirayu Amin and Arun Jaitley from the three-member committee.

Modi, who has not appeared in person before the committee in the three hearings so far, made the claim on his twitter page and said he was shocked by the BCCI demand.

"Just heard that BCCI want my lawyers to recuse themselves! Shocked since meeting was for committee’s recusal," Modi wrote on his twitter page.

"People party to all decisions don’t want to recuse themselves. But want my team who are presenting my case too. Is this how an enquiry is done?" he questioned.

Modi, whose series of tweets began after the third hearing started here, alleged that BCCI was not looking for a solution but just interested in dragging on the issue.

"Am surprised by committee’s actions. Want to bring this matter to rest but being forced to drag it on," Modi tweeted.
