Court allows suspended Bansal to continue as DDCA president

In an interim relief to Sneh Bansal, who was suspended from the post of DDCA president by his rivals, a Delhi court has ordered he will again function as the president of the cricket body till its further orders. Additional district judge Manish Yaduvanshi said ‘status quo’ should be maintained till the court decides the main law suit of Bansal seeking to declare as ‘ultra-vires and illegal’ the parallel meeting of Delhi and Districts Cricket Association’s executive committee held on December 9, 2014 which was not chaired by him.

The court’s order came while deciding Bansal’s another plea filed during pendency of his main suit. In the plea, Bansal, through his advocate Gautam Dutta, had sought the court to direct DDCA, its treasurer Ravinder Manchanda and vice-president Chetan Chauhan not to interfere in exercise of his powers as a president and also to restrain them from recognising the posts of alleged interim president and interim general secretary.

The court said the resolutions under challenge being prima facie failing the test of requisite authority are liable to be put to stay till disposal of the suit. “The parties to the suit shall observe status quo ante as it existed at the time of adjournment of EC meeting of December 9, 2014, was scheduled at 6.30 pm,” the judge said.
