Hyderabad, Dec 10 (UNI) The Andhra Pradesh High Court today dismissed a case against BCCI Chief Sharad Pawar and five others over alleged ''irregularities in the sale of tickets'' for the India-Australia ODI held at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on October 5.

Mr Justice G V Seetapathi dismissed the case filed by P Radhakrishna, a former Rajya Sabha member, on the grounds that there was no evidence to substantiate the charges.

The court pronounced the order on a petition filed by Hyderabad Cricket Association challenging a lower court order on registering an FIR against Pawar, BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah, HCA President and State Minister G Vinod, its Secretary Shivlal Yadav and two others.

A city court had earlier directed the police to register an FIR against the cricket administrators on the petition filed by Mr Radhakrishna on November 2.

The petitioner had submitted that only 15,000 of the total 39,000 tickets were sold to the public and the remaining were distributed to VIPs and corporates.
