New Delhi: The Delhi HC has allowed the BCCI to hold its special general body meeting to consider report against Lalit Modi on alleged irregularities in IPL.

Earlier on Tuesday, the BCCI has challenged a trial court’s order in Delhi High Court that barred it from holding its Special General Meeting (SGM).

The board had organised a meeting on September 25 to discuss the report submitted by its disciplinary committee on former India Premier League (IPL) commissioner Lalit Modi for his alleged involvement in financial irregularities during his tenure.

The court heard the BCCI’s plea that mentioned that the trial court had no jurisdiction to pass such an order considering the meeting was scheduled to take place in Chennai.
