The unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar chief Aditya Verma on Wednesday asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) interim President Sunil Gavaskar to clarify whether N Srinivasan attended an IPL Governing Council meeting despite a Supreme Court order restraining him from participating in any Board activity.


Citing the Supreme Court order, which forced Srinivasan to step aside as BCCI President pending an inquiry into the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal, Verma alleged that the Chennai-strongman conducted a secret meeting of the IPL Governing Council in Ranchi.


“Being a petitioner in this matter, I want your clarification regarding Srinivasan staying in Ranchi during the Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals match,” Verma said.


“He also arranged a secret meeting with the GC of IPL and management of CSK in Ranchi with the help of the President of Jharkhand State Cricket Association who is a member of the GC of IPL. This is a serious issue and I want to know that are you aware of that meeting?” he asked.


“If you don’t know then you have to take action against the involved persons,” he added.
