Bangalore: The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday admitted a writ petition seeking direction to Prasar Bharathi authorities to dispose of the Internet rights of the cricket matches held in India under the auspices of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the five-year period 1999-2004 and award the rights through public auction or tenders.Chief Justice P V Reddi and Justice N K Patil admitted the petition filed by one Sripathi Rao. The petitioner contended that the Prasar Bharathi had acquired the rights of telecast from the BCCI by entering into an agreement on September 25, 1999 and sold the rights to Times World International (TWI) for Rs 450 Crores. The Internet rights was being proposed to be given to STRACT CON (I) (P) Ltd, by accepting its offer privately. This was illegal and unconstitutional and will result in a huge loss of Rs 650 crores to the Prasar Bharathi.Therefore, the petitioner sought for a direction to dispose of the Internet rights only by Tenders or Public action. The petitioner also sought a CIB enquiry in this regard. UNI
