Bombay High Court dismisses Modi's petition

Last updated on: September 15, 2010 14:03 IST

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday dismissed for the second time the petition filed by suspended IPL chairman Lalit Modi, challenging constitution of the BCCI disciplinary committee, formed to look into the alleged irregularities committed by him.

Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice D Y Chandrachud also refused to stay Wednesday's proceedings of the disciplinary committee.

Modi had argued in the petition that two members of the committee -- Arun Jaitley and Chirayu Amin -- are likely to be biased against him and pleaded that they should be replaced.

The court, however, held that Modi can raise the issue of bias at a later stage while challenging the final decision of the committee and the BCCI.

The suspended IPL chief had earlier also filed petition on the same grounds but another division bench in July said that he could raise the issue before the committee itself.

The committee subsequently rejected his argument on August 11 holding that Amin and Jaitley need not pull out.

Being aggrieved, Modi moved the High Court second time but the court did not grant him any relief.
