Jagmohan Dalmiya sues BCCI for his expulsion
Kolkata, Jan 26: Challenging his expulsion by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the board`s former president Jagmohan Dalmiya Thursday filed a civil suit against present BCCI president Sharad Pawar, its secretary Niranjan Shah et al in the Calcutta High Court.
Dalmiya, who had to resign from the post of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president following his expulsion by the BCCI, said he was expelled on false, biased and fabricated charges.
The former BCCI chief, who was responsible for marketing the game to new heights, was expelled from the board in December last year and was removed from all posts on charges of financial irregularities during his tenure at the helm of the BCCI.
The Special General Body of the board adopted a resolution that expelled and barred Dalmiya from holding any position in any organs of the cricket body, including state associations.
Dalmiya was accused of producing forged documents and misappropriation of funds to the tune of several million rupees from the Pakistan-India-Sri Lanka committee (PILCOM) accounts, formed for the World Cup 1996 co-hosted by the India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
