HC stays order stopping DDCA secretary from being director

Delhi High Court on Tuesday stayed its order restraining former India team manager and Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) secretary Sunil Dev from acting as a director of the sports body for allegedly violating Companies Act by receiving remuneration for rendering his services.

A bench of justice B D Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva also issued notice to DDCA and its officials Hari Krishan and Rajinder Kumar seeking their responses on Dev’s appeal. The court also questioned DDCA why it did not take action against its other members, including its vice-president Chetan Chauhan, for receiving similar remuneration. “Notice is issued to the respondents (Krishan, Kumar and DDCA). Meanwhile, order of the single judge (of January 30, 2015) is stayed,” the court said, adding replies be filed before March 5.

Giving relief to Dev, the court said, “We find it is a targeted approach. Chetan Chauhan was also not eligible. Why are you (respondents here) not proceeding against him? You are selectively going against one person, why are you not going against others who have been violating the same Act?”
