New Delhi: A Delhi court on Saturday restrained the BCCI from holding its Special General Meeting (SGM) on September 25 to consider the report of the disciplinary committee on former IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi for alleged financial irregularities in running of the cricket league.

The ex-parte order was passed on the plea of Modi challenging Sanjay Patel's authority as BCCI Secretary in issuing the September two notice to him for considering the report of the three-member disciplinary committee comprising Arun Jaitley, Chirayu Amin and Jyotiraditya Scindia on September 25.

He has also shown that he shall suffer irreparable loss which cannot be compensated in terms of money by the report of the disciplinary committee being considered in an unauthorised meeting.
