Delhi HC cautions cricket buff

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday cautioned a cricket buff, who has questioned the functioning of the BCCI, from creating a hype over the issue.

``Do not create a hype,'' a Bench comprising Chief Justice B.C. Patel and Justice S.K. Kaul said when the petitioner questioned the transparency in the functioning of the Cricket Board by saying that BCCI did not even have its own website.

The Court was hearing a PIL filed by two cricket lovers — advocate Rahul Mehra and Shantanu Sharma — who had alleged that the BCCI was functioning as private empires of some traders and businessmen who have come to control it and abuse it for their own interests and profits.

They had sought an independent probe into the functioning of BCCI and its accounts involving huge public money.

After a brief hearing, the Court posted the matter for May 25 asking advocate Mehra to submit a synopsis containing the issues and suggestions he would like to be addressed. — PTI
