After getting the much needed reprieve over his suspension from the BCCI, former Indian cricket Board president Jagmohan Dalmiya on Friday stepped on the gas filing a perjury case against the Board before the Calcutta High Court.
"We have filed a perjury case against the Board and members of the disciplinary committee which had expelled Dalmiya," his counsel Arindam Banerjee said.
The case was filed against BCCI, its president Sharad Pawar, secretary Niranjan Shah, Shashank Manohar and Chirayu Amin.
Banerjee alleged that the Board had placed a forged document before Justice Indira Banerjee regarding the condonation of time application for the registration of an amendment to BCCI's Clause V of Rule 38.
He alleged that the Board had wrongly claimed to have got permission from the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration body to register the amendment at a later date.
Banerjee, stating that an amendment must be registered with TNSRA within three months, claimed that the application for condonation of delay was filed six years after the amendment was made in September, 2000.
It was applied for only after the suspension of Dalmiya, he claimed.
The perjury case was filed under Section 340 of criminal procedure code for allegedly providing false information to the court.
The matter would be moved shortly before the High Court, he said.
