New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday stayed all criminal proceeding against BCCI chairman Sharad Pawar. The former BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya had earlier filed a case against him alleging that his suspension from the BCCI was illegal.

The SC also stayed criminal proceedings against 5 other BCCI members who were also named in the case.

High court of Calcutta had decided to initiate criminal proceedings against six Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) officials for filing false affidavits in Jagmohan Dalmiya"s expulsion case.

Justice Nadira Pathariya had passed the order eight months after Dalmiya moved a case of perjury against Pawar and Board officials and prayed for criminal proceedings against them for allegedly producing false documents in court.

The court passed the ex parte order and directed the Registrar (Original side) to initiate criminal proceedings under section 195 of CR P C (prosecution for contempt of lawful authority of public servants for offences against public justice and for offences relating to documents given in evidence), at an appropriate court.
