BCCI files FIR against Dalmiya in PILCOM case
Mumbai, Mar 16 (UNI) The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has launched another broadside against its former president Jagmohan Dalmiya by filing an FIR at a city police station for misappropriation of funds during the 1996 World Cup.
BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah personally went to the Marine Drive police station to file the First Information Report (FIR) late this afternoon.
Besides Dalmiya, there are three others--Jyoti Bajpai (former treasurer BCCI), S K Nair (former secretary) and Kishore Rungta (former senior Board member), whose names are also included in the FIR.
DCP Nawal Bajaj confirmed to UNI on the filing of the FIR and said that proper legal procedure would be taken following this development.
The new BCCI regime, headed by Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, had recently accused Dalmiya of swindling BCCI money during the 1996 World Cup and had also pointed out certain irregularities in the PILCOM account.
The PILCOM (Pakistan-India-Lanka Committee) was formed to conduct the 1996 World Cup, which was held in the sub-continent.
