After strict investigation and vigilance, the BCCI has posed a ban of two years on journalist Boria Majumdar. He has got the ban as aggressively intimidated star wicketkeeper Batsman of India Wriddiman Saha.
The ban includes Majumdar not getting press accreditation for domestic or international matches in India, no interviews with any “registered players” and no access to cricket facilities owned by the BCCI or the state/member associations, for the two years.
In a letter sent to its members on Tuesday, the BCCI said that a three-member committee comprising vice-president Rajeev Shukla, treasurer Arun Dhumal and councillor Prabhtej Singh Bhatia had spoken to both Saha and Majumdar and concluded that Majumdar’s actions “were indeed in the nature of threat and intimidation”.
“The BCCI Committee considered the submissions by both Mr Saha and Mr Majumdar and concluded that the actions by Mr Majumdar were indeed in the nature of threat and intimidation. The BCCI Committee recommended the following sanctions to the Apex Council of BCCI,” the letter read.
