DDCA issue: Delhi HC dismisses plea of Kirti Azad, Bedi

New Delhi, Feb. 9 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed the plea of former Indian cricketers Kirti Azad and Bishan Singh Bedi seeking court monitored SIT probe into the alleged financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

Describing the plea to be immature, the High Court said that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has already started a preliminary inquiry and needs to be given time.

The High Court further said the SIT probe can only be ordered in the rarest of rare cases and not because some Union Minister is said to be allegedly involved.

The duo had moved the Delhi High Court, demanding appointment of an independent administrator to look into the alleged financial irregularities in the DDCA.

The plea sought direction to the Centre to cancel the privileges like subsidised land that have been extended to the DDCA and to ensure that no loss is caused to exchequer.

The BJP had earlier in December last year suspended Azad for accusing Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley of corruption during his tenure as the DDCA chief. (ANI)
