The Bombay High Court on Monday refused to stay its single bench order stalling the proceedings of the Disciplinary Committee of the Cricket Board against former IPL Commissioner, Lalit Modi. The committee, which is probing allegations of financial irregularities against Modi, had been deferred till January 10 by the HC order.
After hearing both the parties, Justice Abhay Oka and Justice U D Salvi refused to stay the order passed on December 25 this year, by Justice S J Kathawala who had stalled the proceedings against Modi.
The BCCI had sought a stay on that order and prayed that the meeting of the Disciplinary Committee, comprising Arun Jaitley, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Chirayu Amin, be allowed to be held on December 27 and 28.
However, the High Court refused to allow the proceedings.
Owing to the High Court order on Monday, the proceedings of the Disciplinary Committee would remain stayed. On December 25, Justice Kathawala had granted relief to Modi saying that a prima facie case had been made out for staying the proceedings of BCCI Disciplinary Committee.
