Verma sends legal notice to all BCCI Working Committee members


New Delhi: Unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar President Aditya Verma today sent legal contempt notice to all the BCCI members, including N Srinivasan, who took part in the Board’s Working Committee Meeting held in Chennai on February 8.

Verma, who was a petitioner in the IPL spot-fixing case, decided to take legal action on the pretext of the members allegedly violating the Supreme Court order on the IPL case. Citing the SC order of January 22, Verma claimed that “by allowing Srinivasan to participate and chair the meeting in his alleged capacity as BCCI President, the entire Working Committee members as well Srinivasan have committed gross contempt of the Supreme Court”.

“I call upon the Working Committee of the BCCI to issue a statement forthwith that allowing Mr N Srinivasan to attend and chair the Working Committee meeting was due to improper understanding of the scope of the Hon’ble Supreme Court order dated 22 January, 2015 and a bonafide mistake and that the Working Committee members will not allow Mr N Srinivasan to chair the AGM on 2nd March, 2015,” Verma said in the legal notice sent to all the 32 members through his counsel.

“Failing which my client will have no other option except to file contempt petition against all the Working Committee members of the BCCI and Mr N Srinivasan in the Hon’ble Supreme Court and all of you will be held liable for all costs and consequences arising therefrom,” he said.
