Cricketer Hiken Shah moves High Court against suspension by BCCI

News Agencies | Updated on: 10 August 2015, 19:47 IST

Hiken Shah, Mumbai cricketer, has approached the Bombay High Court against his suspension by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for allegedly flouting its anti-corruption code.

The cricket body suspended Shah, a batsman who was a part of Mumbai Ranji squad, on July 13 after he was found guilty of making "corrupt approach" to a team-mate who was also a member of Rajasthan Royals IPL franchise.

According to BCCI's version, the franchise informed the cricket body about the incident and BCCI president Jaganmohan Dalmiya asked its anti-corruption unit to conduct an inquiry.

The inquiry commissioner found Shah guilty of "breaching" its anti-corruptiion code, it said.

Shah has moved the HC through his lawyer, advocate Som Sinha. The petition claims that he was not given a hearing before the order was passed and it should be set aside.

The division bench of Justices V M Kanade and B P Colabawalla has directed BCCI to file its reply. The next hearing would be on August 12.
