Kale affair: Subba Rao to issue notices today

By Our Staff Reporter

VISAKHAPATNAM NOV. 23. The Chairman of the Bar Council of India, D.V. Subba Rao, who has been asked by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to look into the allegation of a Maharashtra cricketer Abhijit Kale, offering `bribe' to two National selectors, Kiran More and Pranob Roy, will issue notices to the three on Monday.

"They will be given three to four days time to give their reply'', Mr. Subba Rao said here on Sunday. He was given 15 days time to submit his report. Mr. Subba Rao, who returned to the city on Sunday after attending meetings at Pune and Kochi, was expecting to complete the inquiry within the fixed time.

His presence in Pune in connection with a legal matter coincided with the Maharashtra Cricket Association's inquiry into the Kale affair but some papers of the region had mistakenly found some connection between the two.

His report would be submitted to the disciplinary committee of the BCCI which would make the final decision, he said.

On the possibility of the charge of Vanka Pratap that some selector sought a bribe from him to put him in the Indian team, to be brought under purview of his inquiry, Mr. Rao said it was natural that more allegations were being made when one incident came to light.

Former Indian spinner Narender Hirwani has also come out with a statement that the vagaries of the selectors had ruined his career.
