Modi moves apex court

Modi has sought removal of Arun Jaitley and Chirayu Amin from three-member committee, which also has Jyotiraditya Scindia, submitting that they are likely to be biased against him.

He has also sought stay on further proceedings before the disciplinary committee instituted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). On July 15, the Bombay High Court refused to entertain Modi's petition seeking re-constitution of the disciplinary panel.

The disciplinary committee is probing allegations of financial irregularities against him. He has also challenged his suspension from the BCCI.

Modi had contended before the High Court that BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan had launched "persecution" against him on the basis of media reports and complaints made by rank outsiders and "meddlesome interlopers" who are neither members of the Board, nor administrators.

He submitted that there should be a free and fair inquiry in all the allegations, including the conflict of interest against Srinivasan for owning Chennai Super Kings while being the officer-bearer of BCCI.
