Kirti Azad moves HC to appoint administrator to look into DDCA
Former Indian cricketers Kirti Azad, Bishan Bedi and others on Monday moved the Delhi High Court demanding appointment of an independent administrator to look into the alleged financial irregularities in the DDCA.
The suspended BJP MP said that beside DDCA, he in his petition has impleaded the central and state governments, CBI, BCCI and all current and former 13 DDCA officials, including its former president and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. The plea, filed by former Indian cricketers Azad, Bishan Singh Bedi, Maninder Singh, Dronacharya awardee cricket coach Gurcharan Singh and two others, sought direction to the Centre “to cancel the privileges like subsidised land that have been extended to Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) and to ensure that no loss is caused to exchequer”.
Maintaining that Azad and others were “aggrieved by the financial mismanagement and the general mismanagement of the affairs” of the cricketing body, the plea said an investigation by a “SIT or a court-monitored investigation by CBI” be carried out to look into the criminal offence committed by DDCA officials.
