The BCCI on Tuesday suspended the Rajasthan Cricket Association, hours after results of the election for office bearers of the state body showed Lalit Modi had been elected president by an emphatic 24 votes to 5.

Modi, a former commissioner of the IPL, has been slapped with a life ban by BCCI, and faces an investigation by the Enforcement Directorate for alleged violations of foreign exchange laws. The result of the RCA elections, held over four months ago, was declared by the Supreme Court-appointed observer, Justice (retd) N M Kasliwal.

BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said the RCA’s membership had been suspended “on charges of misconduct” and “an ad-hoc committee would be constituted shortly”. The RCA vowed to challenge the suspension.
