Kolkata: Former BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya’s widow Chandralekha on Saturday said she has been “deeply hurt” by the Supreme Court’s observations on her late husband during the hearing on Justice R M Lodha-led committee recommendations to revamp cricket.

“I am deeply hurt and saddened by the uncalled for observations as have appeared in newspapers.

No one is empowered even by Almighty to insult or make any derogatory observations as per will that too against a person who has left for heavenly abode after devoting his entire life for the growth and development of the game of cricket,” the 69-year-old said in a statement.

Dalmiya died at the age of 75 as the president of BCCI in September last year.
