Jagmohan Dalmiya takes BCCI, Sharadpawar to court

The Calcutta High Court on Friday took up a perjury case filed by former BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya against BCCI and its president Sharad Pawar for allegedly producing false documents before the court.

Justice Nadira Patheriya directed that the matter would be heard on April 18. This comes just two days after Dalmiya, charged with misappropriating Rs 2.90 crore during his tenure, was arrested and immediately released on bail at Mumbai.

The Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police has also filed an over 5,500-page charge sheet against Dalmiya and two others after investigating the case filed by BCCI.

The perjury case was filed by Dalmiya on July 20, 2007 on the day the High Court had declared that his suspension from the Board was illegal.
