Calcutta HC dismisses PIL over Ganguly’s removal as BCCI president

Kolkata, Nov 14 (UNI): A division of Calcutta High Court on Monday dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against the BCCI over Sourav Ganguly’s removal as the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The dismissal of the PIL happened after Ganguly’s lawyer told the court that his client did not support the litigation against the BCCI.


Ganguly’s counsel, Samrat Sen, told the division bench that the former Indian Cricket team captain had no grievances against anyone in this regard.

“Personally, my client (Ganguly) does not support this public interest litigation,” the advocate told the court. Advocate Ramaprasad Sarkar had filed the PIL against Ganguy’s removal as BCCI president. The PIL had raised questions on Ganguly’s exit from the BCCI.

The double bench, comprising among others chief justice Prakash Srivastava, ordered to pay a pay fine of Rs 25,000 for filing such a PIL. The penalty was later revoked, the court sources added.
