ANURAG THAKUR REMOVED FROM BCCI PRESIDENT POST FOLLOWING SUPREME COURT ORDERS
The Supreme Court on Monday ordered BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke to “forthwith cease and desist” from holding their respective offices on the Board.
A three-judge Bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakur and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud further issued notice to Mr. Thakur to respond on why he should not face contempt of Supreme Court proceedings and criminal prosecution for perjury.
The court had found him prima facie guilty of contempt and perjury for approaching ICC chairman Shashank Manohar for a letter undermining the judgment of July 18, 2016 upholding the Justice R.M. Lodha Committee recommendation to have a CAG nominee on the Board’s apex council.
