BCCI Trea­surer Chaudhry of­fers help to probe panel in sex­ual har­rass­ment case

The Free Press Journal - - FPJ SPORTS -

NEW DELHI: BCCI trea­surer Anirudh Chaudhry has be­come the first high pro­file of­fice bearer to have writ­ten to the in­de­pen­dent probe panel, of­fer­ing to as­sist them in the al­leged sex­ual ha­rass­ment case against CEO Rahul Johri. The three-mem­ber probe panel had given a dead­line of November 9 for any­one want­ing to as­sist the com­mit­tee in the probe against Johri to email them. “Yes, Anirudh had emailed to the panel on Fri­day night it­self of­fer­ing to help them in the probe. He is the first high pro­file official who has come out in the open and mailed to the Com­mit­tee,” a se­nior BCCI official who is aware of the de­vel­op­ment said on con­di­tions of anonymity. The BCCI trea­surer of­fer­ing to as­sist the Com­mit­tee in the probe can be seen as a big de­vel­op­ment. “Ear­lier the Com­mit­tee did not summon IPL pe­ti­tioner Aditya Verma, who wanted to de­pose be­fore the panel as they were not sure of his lo­cus standi. Now a cur­rent of­fice bearer has raised his hand and writ­ten an email. This is be­com­ing se­ri­ous now,” the official said. Johri cur­rently has been sent on leave till the probe gets over.
