“However, the RTI filed with State Bank of India (SBI), Bistupur, Jamshedpur Branch reveals that Amitabh Chaudhary isstill operating the account the bank account of the Association as its signatory.”
Verma also submitted transaction statement of the particular bank account.
As per Lodha Committee directive, Amitabh Chaudhary has completed more than three years as the office bearer of JSCA and is not supposed to hold any post in his state association.
However, Verma alleged that Chaudhary convened a meeting of the Ranchi District Cricket Association.
“It is also noteworthy that Amitabh Chaudhary convened an Annual General Meeting of the Ranchi District Cricket Association as the Chairman of the Ranchi District Cricket Association. It is made clear that despite the undertaking, he is still holding the post of the Chairman of Ranchi District Cricket Association, a body affiliated to Jharkhand State Cricket Association.”
