Suspended IPL chairman Lalit Modi has written to BCCI president Shashank Manohar and secretary N Srinivasan asking for a copy of all decisions taken at the board's special general body on Saturday as they "impinge" on his rights.
"Mr Modi has written a letter to Mr Manohar and Mr Srinivasan to confirm that the decision of the honorary secretary to refer the issues raised in the three show-cause notices to him and his reply thereof to the disciplinary committee," Modi's lawyer Mehmood Abdi told PTI. According to Abdi, the letter was sent by email on Saturday night and was hand-delivered as well.
At the meeting, which was held in Mumbai, the BCCI voted unanimously to ratify the charges against Modi and forwarded the case to its disciplinary committee. It also authorised Manohar to file civil or criminal charges against Modi, should they be required.
Since Manohar had recused himself from all proceedings concerning Modi, the board named Union Minister of State and Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association president Jyotiraditya Scindia to the disciplinary committee to replace him. The committee has until October 26 to reach a decision.
Modi was suspended immediately following the conclusion of this year's IPL and charged with financial irregularities relating to the bidding process for IPL franchises, the mid-over ad sales and the sale of theatrical rights. He was also charged with colluding to set up a rebel league in England. Modi had repeatedly accused Manohar and Srinivasan of harbouring personal grudges against him, and insisted neither of them should be involved in deciding his case.
