IPL: SC dismisses Lalit Modi's plea

Supreme Court Wednesday dismissed a petition by former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi seeking to put on hold special general body meeting of the BCCI which is expected to take disciplinary action against him.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday and it will consider the disciplinary committees report on financial irregularities between 2008 and 2010 and the action against him.

Lalit Modi was the Indian Premier League (IPL) commissioner between 2008 and 2010 and had attracted the allegations of financial irregularities.

Declining to interfere in the affairs of the society, the apex court bench headed by Justice H.L. Gokhale said the only thing about you is that you are big and big money is involved.

The court said it could not be expected to interfere into the internal functioning of the society, which BCCI is.

Modi has contended that special general meeting could only be called on the directions of the president and the apex cricketing body has no elected functional president at present.
