Writ filed challenging BD Cricket Board AGM


Dhaka – A writ petition was filed yesterday challenging the legality of Bangladesh Cricket Board’s proposed Annual General Meeting (AGM).Barrister Shafique Ahmed filed the writ petition to the High Court Division of the Supreme Court on behalf of architect Mubasshar Hossain on Sunday.
Earlier, a legal notice was served asking the incumbent Board of Directors of the cricket board to refrain from holding AGM of the board following the recent Supreme Court order.
Mubasshar claimed that according to the Supreme Court order, the BCB has no legal right to call Annual General Meeting. However, BCB has been planning to call the AGM on October 2 at a city hotel. For that reason, the complainant sent a legal notice to seven persons and organizations including the BCB President to stop all kinds of activities about the AGM.
The notice said that BCB will have to stop annual and special meetings within 72 hours upon receiving the notice. – Special Correspondent
