High Court to hear perjury case against BCCI on April 18

Kolkata, Mar 28 (UNI) Justice Nadira Patherya of Kolkata High Court today fixed the date of April 18 for final hearing on the perjury case filed by former BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya against BCCI COO Ratnakar Shetty and the office bearers for misleading the court with forged documents.

Counsel S B Mukherjee appeared on behalf of Mr Dalmiya.

Later sources close to Mr Dalmiya told UNI, ''Mr Dalmiya had filed an application against BCCI COO Ratnakar Shetty, president Sharad Pawar, Secretary Niranjan Shah, vice-presidents Shasank Monohar and Chirau Amin and Treasurer N Srinivasan seeking permission to proceed criminally against them for committing perjury and forgery with an intention to mislead the honourable court.'' ''The case came up for hearing today and the court had permitted the case and fixed the date of April 18 for a hearing,'' the sources said. Dalmiya's case was filed on the allegation that the board had given forged documents before Justice Indira Banerjee regarding the condonation of time application for the registration of an amendment to BCCI's Clause V of Rule 38. Dalmiya also alleged that the board had wrongly claimed to have been permitted by the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration (TNSR) body to register the amendment at a later date.

The perjury case was filed under Section 340 of Criminal Procedure Code for allegedly providing false information to the court.
