Public suit filed against BCCI
A public suit was filed before the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court yesterday asking how the Indian cricket board could nominate players for government awards despite not being one of the National Sports Federations (NSFs) members.
IPS officer Amitabh Thakur and his social activist wife Nutan filed the suit. “For the year 2011, the department granted recognition to 43 NSFs. Cricket is not in this list and BCCI is not among one of these recognised NSFs,” Thakur said.
