New Delhi:The Supreme Court today made absolute its October 11 interim order restraining Jagmohan Dalmiya from becoming the patron-in-chief of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and staying a Madras High Court order appointing Justice S Mohan as the interim administrator of the Court for conduct of elections.

The apex Court directed the Board to expeditiously convene its incomplete AGM for taking over the new Board headed by Ranbir Singh Mahendra.

The Court said the AGM should complete its proceedings even if it cannot transact business on the agenda pertaining to nomination of Dalmiya as the patron-in-chief and his nomination as the representative of BCCI to ICC.

It directed the Madras High Court to expeditiously decide the cases pertaining to the election of BCCI and allowed the plaintiff Netaji Sports Club to amend its petition to question BCCI rules.

The Bench comprising N N Santosh Hegde and S B Sinha directed the BCCI to convene the adjourned AGM for transacting the pending business.

This would facilitate newly-elected officer-bearers, headed by Ranbir Singh Mahendra as president, to assume office.

The Court directed Netaji Sports Club, which had first challenged the elections before the Madras High Court, to move necessary amendments before the High Court so as to question the BCCI rules pertaining to the elections.

The apex Court dismissed all appeals, including that of BCCI, and directed the High Court to expeditiously decide the matter.
