The Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) on Wednesday (May 18) moved the Supreme Court seeking stay of BCCI election for office bearers scheduled for May 22 and to bar chargesheeted candidates from contesting. The plea was mentioned before a vacation bench of Justices A M Sapre and Ashok Bhushan which refused to hear it saying it is part-heard matter and regular bench is already hearing it. Counsel appearing for CAB said that it is an urgent matter as the election is scheduled for May 22 and no prior 21 days’ notice has been given for the elections. He also sought implementation of the Lodha Committee recommendations under which a candidate, who has been chargesheeted in a case, cannot contest the BCCI election for office bearers. The apex bench asked the counsel for CAB to mention the matter before vacation Registrar for listing it before another bench noting that it is already being heard by regular bench. A bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur, which is already hearing the matter, had earlier pulled up the BCCI for resisting the Justice R M Lodha-led committee’s recommendation on capping the age of its office bearers to 70 years.
