SC blow to Lalit Modi : Dismissed his petition against disciplinary committee probing charges against him

Lalit Modi's petition dismissed by Supreme Court..Court says mere presumprtion of bias can not be a ground for intervention

Modi had sought the removal of Arun Jaitley and former IPL administrator Chirayu Amin from the disciplinary committee probing charges of financial irregularities against him.

The court went on to say that we dont think that the committee formed to look into the charges against Modi shall not be able to give him fair hearing.

A two judge bench of Justice J M Panchal and Justice Gokhale passed the orders after all the attempts of a possible settlement between Modi and BCCI failed.

Pronouncing the order Justice H L Gokhale said that the allegations against Chirayu Amir are also not well founded.

Modi in his petition alleged conflict of interest against Jaitley and Amin. He suffered a setback when Mumbai High Court turned down his plea.

Unwilling to give up, he moved the Supreme Court and pulled off a coup of sorts by persuading the BJP leadership to allow noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani to take up cudgels for him in the apex court.

The Supreme Court however had told BCCI and Modi to come to a compromise on the issue.However, the two sides failed to do so.
