Kolkata:Former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya today filed a suit in a city civil court challenging the legality and validity of the Board's summon which asked him to appear before its Disciplinary Committee tomorrow.

'' A suit has been filed in the city civil court, challenging both the legality and validity of July 17 letter of the BCCI that summoned him to appear before its disciplinary committee (in New Delhi) on July 26,'' sources close to Mr Dalmiya told UNI today.

''His lawyer had earlier sent a letter to the BCCI requesting to defer the date of hearing but no response has been received,'' they said.

BCCI, in a letter on July 17, had asked Mr Dalmiya to appear before the committee in relation to alleged misappropriation of PILCOM account funds and transactions in an Indian Overseas Bank in Kolkata.

Mr Dalmiya has been accused by the present BCCI regime of misappropriation and they even filed a criminal case, crediting Rs 40 crore to CAB's account and stopping subsidy to the Cricket Association of Bengal, which has Mr Dalmiya as its head, on ground of unexplained financial matters.
