Court stays ACA election

 A court in Guwahati on Friday asked the Assam Cricket Association not to hold its annual session and general election for the time being.

Acting on a petition filed by a state cricket body member Tapan Hazarika, a bench of Justice PD Gogoi restrained ACA from holding the session and election scheduled for Friday in Silchar.

Hazarika alleged before the court that the state’s cricket board has yet to clear its accounts and audits for the last couple of years.

This is not for the first time ACA had to suspend annual session and election. The cricket body was prevented from holding fresh election on earlier two occasions.
