Legal relief for Jagmohan Dalmiya

Kolkata, Aug 7: In news that comes as huge sigh of relief to present Cricket Association of Bengal President Jagmohan Dalmiya, the Calcutta High Court has quashed criminal proceedings against him. For several years now, the former President of the BCCI has been fighting a case related to severe financial irregularities under his tenure during the 1996 Cricket World Cup.

Dalmiya has been subjected to much criticism from various quarters, especially from within the current BCCI regime, for his financial handling of the mega event, which was hosted by India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. He has been accused of siphoning off crores of rupees during and just after the world cup.
