New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday criticized BCCI President Anurag Thakur saying that he appeared to have committed perjury.
If the perjury is proved then he might land in jail, the court said. It noted that Anurag Tahkur had willfully given an oath that he sought Shashank Manohar’s opinion as BCCI Chairman. Besides, the court has also reserved its decision on substituting the top officials of the cricketing board by appointed administrators.
BCCI has been given a week’s time to name anyone for the post of administrator.
Notably, earlier on Monday the apex court dismissed the cricket body’s plea for reconsideration of its July 18 verdict which stated some major sweeping reforms in BCCI administration as recommended by Justice RM Lodha.
