New Delhi, November 14: The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Friday decided to move the Supreme Court challenging the Calcutta High Court’s directive to initiate criminal proceedings against six top officials for filing false affidavits in the Jagmohan Dalmiya expulsion case.

After consulting top lawyers since Wednesday’s development, the BCCI has gone through the papers and will move the Supreme Court soon.

“It was an ex parte order and the BCCI officials were not given an opportunity to put across their case. We have decided to move the Supreme Court in this matter”, BCCI’s finance committee chairman Rajiv Shukla said on Friday.

The Calcutta High Court on Wednesday directed initiation of criminal proceedings against BCCI President Sashank Manohar, former board president Sharad Pawar and four top officials for filing false affidavits in the Dalmiya expulsion case.

The six BCCI officials, against whom criminal proceedings are to be initiated, have been asked not to speak on the issue since the matter was sub-judice. “Since our lawyers are handling the issue, it is better to allow them to do their work and not complicate matters by making public statements,” an official said.
