Modi to strike back at Governing Council members

Posted By: Samyuktha

New Delhi, May 15: The suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner, Lalit Modi, who was on Apr 26 served with a show-cause notice in connection with the alleged financial irregularities of the Twenty20 cricket series, is expected to file his response on Saturday, May 15.

As per reports, Modi is also planning on striking back at the Governing Council (GC) members with a chargesheet.

Although sources close to the scandal hit-IPL chief have revealed that Modi's legal team has put together a lengthy chargesheet against GC members, there is no information on when Modi is going to serve it.

"Modi has incriminating documents to file his own chargesheet against some GC members, but he is yet to decide whether he should incorporate his counter-charges in his reply or file them as a separate annexure. He also has to decide whether he should submit both the documents Saturday or only the reply to showcause," a member of Modi's legal team revealed on the condition of anonymity.

The source also added that the charges against Modi may not hold strong in the court while the charges Modi has slapped against the high profile GC may make some heads roll.

Modi was expected to file his reponse to the show cause notice served to him by the Board of control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday, May 10, but he had sought extension of time for a span of five days.
