SC seeks BCCI response on Anirudh Chaudhry's threat to CFO
New Delhi, Nov 29 (CRICKETNMORE) - The Supreme Court on Wednesday sought responses from the BCCI and its Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry on allegations that he had threatened the BCCI's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Santosh Rangnekar with "liquidation" on three occasions.
Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud sought the response after amicus curiae Gopal Subramanium produced an e-mail by the CFO to Vinod Rai -- head of the Committee of Administrators managing the cricket affairs as an interim maasure.
Subramanium said Chaudhry had told Rangnekar that had he been in Haryana, he would have been "liquidated" by now. Rai is the former Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
Speaking on the reporters, Chaudhry said this could be a fallout of his views on certain issues including financial transactions which were not palatable to the CFO.
