|Johri’s deadline for reply submission ends|
NEW DELHI, Oct 20: The sexual harassment allegations against Rahul Johri should have been probed by an independent panel and his resignation sought in the interest of fairness, top BCCI office-bearers said on Saturday as the Board CEO’s deadline to respond to the charge ended.
There was no clarity on whether Johri has submitted his response to the allegation, made by an anonymous accuser claiming to be his ex-colleague at a previous job.
Neither the Committee of Administrators (CoA) head Vinod Rai nor the BCCI’s Internal Complaints Committee member, advocate Karina Kriplani, confirmed whether Johri has filed his reply or sought more time at the end of the allotted seven days.
“This is a legal matter and I won’t comment on this,” was all Kriplani said when asked if her committee will be questioning Johri on this issue. – PTI
