In a severe blow to BCCI and its president-in-exile N Srinivasan, the High Court on July 30 that the two member commission was constituted in violation of the rules framed by the BCCI.
"The (probe) Commission was not duly constituted and was contrary to and in violation of the provisions of Rules 2.2 and 3 of Section 6 of the Operational Rules (of BCCI)," the High Court had said and also rejected Srinivisan`s plea for a stay on its order to enable him move a higher court in appeal.
The High Court order came just two days after the panel, comprising two former judges of the Madras High Court Justices T Jayarama Chouta and R Balasubramanian, submitted its report on July 28 giving a clean chit to all those against whom the probe was conducted.
