Supreme Court to set off prosecution against Anurag Thakur
New Delhi: Coming down heavily on Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) President Anurag Thakur, the Supreme Court on Thursday said that it will begin prosecution against Thakur following amicus curiae report of BCCI chief committing perjury.
Apex court, however, has reserved its verdict in the case of Lodha panel and BCCI till January 3.
The allegation of perjury has been put over Thakur after he shot off a letter to International Cricket Council (ICC), demanding its interference to avoid implementation of Lodha recommendations.
On September 28, Lodha panel had asked to replace all current office bearers of BCCI. The panel had also proposed the appointment of former Union home secretary GK Pillai as administrator of the Board.
BCCI, however, had neglected the appointment of Pillai, saying, “we have serious objection over the appointment of Pillai.”
Earlier, SC on December 13, dismissed BCCI’s plea of reviewing its verdict over implementation of Lodha panel recommendations.
