Mumbai:Bombay High Court today issued notices to the BCCI to file an affidavit in four weeks, in response to a PIL seeking court direction to the board to cancel Lalit Kumar Modi is appointment as its vice-president, as he allegedly had a criminal background.

Division bench comprising Chief Justice Kshitij Vyas and Justice Abhay Oka issued notices while hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by a cricket fan--Chandervardhan Parekh--alleging that Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice president Lalit Modi was found guilty of possessing 400 gm of cocaine by a district court in America in 1985.

The petitioner prayed that people with such a criminal background should not be appointed in BCCI.
