N Srinivasan seeks an adjournment to a future date

6th March

The cross examination of BCCI officials is underway before the the special director of enforcement directorate at Mumbai. 

Mr N Srinivasan and Prasanna Kannan were summoned to appear before the adjudicating authority on Wednesday 7 March 2018. However N Srinivasan has sought an adjournment to a future date. 

It may be recalled that earlier Sundar Raman and Chirayu Amin who were also supposed to appear before the adjudicating authority had skipped the date and sought adjournment. 

As per the established norms and procedures compliance of FEMA regulations essentially come under the domain of the key functionaries of any organization like the BCCI. As such the contentious issue in this regard is being contested by Lalit Modi’s lawyers before the ED authorities for alleged FEMA violations since it was the President, secretary and treasurer of the BCCI who were entitled to take decisions concerning the FEMA regulations.  

Top BCCI functionaries under High Court order dated 30 January 2018 have been summoned by the enforcement directorate by Lalit Modi’s lawyers.

Under the High Court order, ED must complete the cross-examination before March 12. Srinivasan was scheduled to be cross-examined on March 7 at 11:30 am in ED office at Mumbai along with co-noticee Prasanna Kannan. Now a new date will be given to him for his appearance.
