Mumbai: Oct 8, 2013

The Bombay High Court on Tuesday declined to grant interim relief to top cricket board official Ratnakar Shetty who had challenged a recent amendment in bylaws of Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) which disqualified him from contesting its elections.

A bench headed by Justice SJ Vajifdar observed that at this juncture the court was not inclined to grant ad-interim relief prayed by Shetty, who is Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) General Manager (Game Development), in his petition.

The amendment had barred Shetty from contesting MCA elections on the ground he was a paid employee of the board and hence would not be able to take a firm stand against BCCI whenever the situation arose in sensitive matters.

Shetty, in his petition, prayed for a stay on this amendment and sought relief to contest elections of the Association scheduled to be held on October 18.

Earlier, the High Court had upheld a civil court’s order to stay the five-year ban imposed by MCA on Shetty. The court had said the action against Shetty was “pre-determined and drastic”.

Shetty, who has served MCA in various capacities over the last two decades, had been banned by the association for alleging that some office-bearers of MCA might be involved in black marketing of tickets of the India-Pakistan T20 match played at Ahmedabad on December 28 last year.
