New Delhi: A court here on Friday directed the executive committee (EC) of Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) not to convene any meeting till January 27 when it would hear a plaint filed by its suspended President Sneh Bansal.
The court's direction came while hearing the plaint of Bansal, who was removed from the post on allegations of misappropriation and siphoning off funds, filed against some of its executive members.
Additional District Judge Manish Yadhuvanshi, however, said the sports committee meeting may be held as scheduled but no final selection list of under-19 cricketers should be prepared till the next date of hearing on January 27.
"Suffice to say, that even if there is some financial irregularity in the manner alleged, then also it will have to be established first that such resolutions could have been passed in the EC meetings in the absence of its elected President.
"...It also becomes necessary that such further meetings be put to rest till such time by which the factual matrix emerges clearly. It is directed that till the next date of hearing, the EC meetings shall not be convened," the judge said.
Bansal, who is currently a BCCI vice-president, has filed the plaint against DDCA, its Vice President Chetan Chauhan and treasurer Ravinder Manchanda.
The court also directed the three defendants to file their replies on Bansal's interim applications by January 27.
Bansal's counsel argued that the defendants have been convening various EC meetings and adopting various resolutions against the memorandum and articles of association of DDCA.
Earlier, Bansal had withdrawn his plaint filed in the
court against some of the executive members of DDCA for allegedly illegally stripping of his powers.
Bansal had moved the court claiming 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."
He had said that 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 claimed that "the report ... 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 alleged.
