Srinivasan committed contempt of court: Verma

November 16, 2014 14:15 IST

Aditya Verma, the petitioner in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, has claimed that BCCI's President-in-exile N Srinivasan committed contempt of court by attending the Asian Cricket Council meeting.

N SrinivasanVerma, secretary of the unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar, also alleged that the BCCI's decision to call an emergent working committee meeting on November 18 is illegal.

"Despite being clearly told by the honourable Supreme Court that he should not act as the BCCI president till further orders, Srinivasan had gone and attended the meeting of the Asian Cricket Council in Dubai on November 7 as the 'President' of the BCCI," Verma said in a statement.

"The honourable Supreme Court has already revealed there are prima facie evidences against him in not one but two reports of Justice Mudgal Commission. The court has already served notice on him for act of "misdemeanour" relating to cases of betting and match-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL)," he added.

The Supreme Court on Friday disclosed the names of Srinivasan, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra and former Indian Premier League CEO Sundar Raman among 13 who were investigated by the court-appointed inquiry panel for corruption in the cash-rich T20 competition.

All four will be served notices to explain their point. The next hearing will be on November 24.
