BCCI to discuss Lalit Modi's fate

By Mamatha

Mumbai, July 3 (ANI): The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to file a Rs 1200 crore-fraud case against suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) Commissioner Lalit Modi.

Modi's fate may be decided today, as the BCCI has convened its special general meeting to draft action plan against him.

The BCCI has reconstituted the Disciplinary Committee that will investigate the matter against Modi with Jyotiraditya Scindia replacing Shashank Manohar as the third member.

It has been reported that around thirty members will be attending the meeting and those allegedly close to Modi are expected to miss this special meeting.

The three-point agenda of the meeting to be held at the Board headquarters will ratify the action of Srinivasan in referring the charges against Modi issued in the three show cause notices served to him to the Disciplinary Committee for further proceedings among other things.

The BCCI had earlier in May given a show cause notice to Modi on charges of financial irregularity.

There are five main charges against Modi, ranging from receiving kickbacks for allotting TV broadcast rights to indiscipline and leveling baseless charges against the BCCI.

He is also facing charges of rigging the bidding of two new IPL teams, which were eventually won by Sahara and the Kochi IPL consortium and also for being a ghost owner in three IPL teams.

Modi has claimed that he has submitted most of the relevant IPL documents.

They include all franchisee agreements, global media rights agreements, the global media rights packages, bid documents, media rights licensee agreements, eligibility letters of all bidders with details and all sponsorship agreements entered into by IPL. (ANI)
