AIFF panel snubs Bagan

The AIFF-appointed independent one-man committee of former Supreme Court judge Ashok Kumar Ganguly on Wednesday rejected Mohun Bagan’s request to furnish stadium-related documents concerning their violence-marred I-League match against East Bengal on Dec 9.

The documents related to stadium stability, infrastructure, safety, insurance and fire licence are ‘unrelated (and) the AIFF is not relying upon them’, AIFF’s legal counsel Usha Nath Banerjee said, informing about the order passed by the one-man commission.

In a letter to the AIFF, Mohun Bagan had on Tuesday asked for the reports of police, match commissioner and documents related to the stadium infrastructure and safety.
Mohun Bagan had decided not to play after the interval with the side trailing 0-1, saying their players were scared to continue after a missile thrown from the stand hit its player Syed Rahim Nabi near the eye.
