CK Khanna forms committee on Palam fiasco, Vinod Rai disbands it

COA chief Vinod Rai yesterday overruled acting president CK Khanna's decision of forming a committee to investigate the security lapse during a Ranji Trophy game at Palam, saying such a move would have been futile considering it is an Air Force-owned facility. In a mail to COA and BCCI officer-bearers, Khanna informed them about his decision to form a panel chaired by acting treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhary with Ratnakar Shetty being the convener.

The other members were supposed to be Avishek Dalmiya (CAB) and Jai Shah (Gujarat CA). Responding to that communication, Rai wrote to the concerned officials including Khanna that the committee was not needed and hence disbanded it. "I find that the acting President did not get himself briefed by the BCCI administration before deciding to constitute the said committee. There was no consultation with the COA either on this issue," Rai wrote in the mail.

"Security of armed forces premises are managed by the Armed Forces themselves and they will not allow BCCI or any other civilian agency to undertake investigation of either its premises or provide documents," Rai wrote further.
