BCCI on Saturday handed over a set of bank vouchers and other documents to its former president Jagmohan Dalmiya relating to allegations of misappropriation of funds against him, as per a court order.

BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah and the board's lawyers Ankur Chawla and SK Bajoria handed over 1975 bank vouchers and 24 other documents to Dalmiya's representatives Subhrangshu Ganguly and Kunal Bose for inspection.

Copies of a letter from the Board's finance committee chairman to auditor SP Billimoria and his reply were also given to Dalmiya's representatives.

Dalmiya was, however, not present.

The Chief Judge of the City Civil Court had on August 22 asked the BCCI to supply the documents to Dalmiya before August 29 for inspection on which the Board was to rely upon for proceedings against him in connection with the PILCOM (Pakistan India Lanka Committee for 1996 World Cup) accounts.

The court had directed Dalmiya to complete the inspection and file his reply on the proceedings to the Board by September 9.

The Board would be free to summon Dalmiya before the Disciplinary Committee after another seven days following September 9, Judge PK Sarkar had ordered.

The Board had suspended Dalmiya pending inquiry by the disciplinary committee into allegations of financial irregularities against him and had asked him to appear before the committee on August 15.

Dalmiya, however, had moved court which directed the board on August 10 to postpone the meeting.
