Kolkata: Justice Nadira Patherya of Kolkata High Court on Friday fixed April 18 as the final hearing date in the perjury case filed by former BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya against incumbent BCCI president Sharad Pawar, COO Ratnakar Shetty, secretary Niranjan Shah and the other office bearers for misleading the court with forged documents.

Counsel S B Mukherjee appeared on behalf of  Dalmiya.

''Dalmiya had filed an application against BCCI COO Ratnakar Shetty, president Sharad Pawar, secretary Niranjan Shah, vice-presidents Shasank Monohar and Chirau Amin and Treasurer N Srinivasan seeking permission to proceed criminally against them for committing perjury and forgery with an intention to mislead the honourable court,''  sources close to Dalmiya told UNI,

''The case came up for hearing today and the court had permitted the case and fixed the date of April 18 for a hearing,'' the sources added.

Dalmiya's case was filed on the allegation that the board had given forged documents before Justice Indira Banerjee regarding the condonation of time application for the registration of an amendment to BCCI's Clause V of Rule 38.

Dalmiya also alleged that the board had wrongly claimed to have been permitted by the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration (TNSR) body to register the amendment at a later date.

The perjury case was filed under Section 340 of Criminal Procedure Code for allegedly providing false information to the court.
