New Delhi: Suspended president of Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) Sneh Bansal on Monday withdrew his complaint filed in a Delhi court against some of its executive members for allegedly illegally stripping of his powers.
Bansal, who is currently a BCCI vice-president, sought court's permission to withdraw the plea citing some new developments in the matter.
Additional District Judge Ajay Goel dismissed the plaint as withdrawn with liberty to file fresh complaint, if need arises.
According to Bansal's advocate Gautam Dutta, the complaint was filed against DDCA's acting head Chetan Chauhan and treasurer Ravinder Manchanda.
The executive committee of DDCA had suspended Bansal on the "allegations of misappropriation and siphoning off funds".
Bansal has moved the court terming that it was an "illegal resolution passed by some of the Executive Members led by Ravinder Manchanda and Chetan Chauhan, whereby the elected President and General Secretary of the DDCA were illegally stripped of their powers in violation of the Company law and also the Memorandum of the DDCA."
Chauhan and his faction had formed a four-member fact- finding committee chaired by Sunil Jain along with Siddharth Verma, Salil Seth and Vinod Garg to look into the alleged misappropriation.
Manchanda had earlier said, "The report that has been tabled by the Fact Finding Committee of the DDCA has found out that on January 30, an amount of Rs 53 lakh was transferred through RTGS to Maple Infratech. When we further tracked, it was found that the same money next day was transferred to one Ratan Industries. Now Ratan Industries is Sneh Bansal's own company."
"Similarly, on February 3, an amount of Rs 44 lakh was transferred via RTGS to Shri Ram Tradecom and then transferred to Ratan Industries. We have all the required documents and we are still discussing whether there is a need to file criminal complaint against Bansal," Manchanda had said.
