SC refuses to restrain Srinivasan from contesting elections

New Delhi: The Supreme Court yesterday refused to pass any order on the plea to restrain N Srinivasan from participating in the November 20 AGM of the BCCI and to declare as illegal the continuance of its office bearers due to the failure of the Board to hold its elections prior to September 30.

The apex court said before taking any call on the issue, it will wait for the outcome of the inquiry of the Justice Mudgal Committee which is probing the IPL betting and spot fixing scandal and is scheduled to file its final report by November 10.

“Let us wait for the report of the probe committee. Let the decks be cleared for the elections. We had given the last order (on September 2013) allowing him (Srinivasan) to participate in the election but he will not hold the office (President) till further order,” a bench comprising Justices T S Thakur and F M I Kalifulla told the Cricket Association of Bihar.
