There was fresh trouble for the beleaguered Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Ajay Shirke as the Hyderabad High Court served a contempt notice on him.
Justice Suresh Kumar Kait has asked Shirke to either comply with the previous order of this court in a week's time from the date of the receipt of this order or appear in the court. Justice Kait also directed the High Court Registry to send the notice to the BCCI secretary.
"The court has taken a serious note of the issue and in its mind, a prima facie case of contempt has been committed," said Mir Masood Khan, counsel for the petitioner Bharat Cricket Club represented by its secretary T Shesh Narayan. The case relates to the financial audit of the state associations done by Delloitte on behalf of the BCCI.
On May 31, Shesh Narayan had written to the BCCI asking for a copy of the audit report.He had also sent a legal notice through Ms Master Minds Legal. But the BCCI failed to respond to his request. An aggrieved Shesh Narayan then moved the High Court.
