Blow for Modi as HC dismisses petition


Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Wednesday dismissed suspended Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi’s petition seeking the recusal of two of the BCCI’s disciplinary committee members.

Modi had filed a petition in the Bombay High Court asking for the recusal of Arun Jaitley and Chirayu Amin on the ground that they were biased against him.

Talking to reporters, BCCI CAO Ratnakar Shetty said that the hearing had been fixed for 2 PM today.

“We are very happy that the honourable justice did not give any relief to Modi. We will go ahead with the disciplinary committee hearing as planned,” he said.

“The hearing is fixed to start at 2 PM today and it will go on,” Shetty added.

Earlier on Tuesday, Modi has asked the BCCI to halt its disciplinary committee proceedings against him till the Bombay High court pronounced its order.

Modi`s lawyer Mehmood Abdi had said, “The arguments concluded today. Keeping in view the urgency of the matter the court has reserved the judgement to be pronounced tomorrow at 11 am.”

“In view of this development we are requesting BCCI to defer the disciplinary committee proceedings at least till the judgement is pronounced tomorrow because if we succeed the entire proceedings of the disciplinary committee shall be stayed,” Abdi said.
