Mumbai: The Bombay High Court Friday directed the Enforcement Directorate to provide documents to sacked IPL chief Lalit Modi based on which the central agency had issued him show cause notices in July 2011 and March 2013 for alleged foreign exchange violations in the Indian Premier League held in South Africa in 2009.
The bench, comprising Justice S.J. Vazifdar and Justice B.P. Colabawalla, said its order came on two counts -- the violation of principles of natural justice whereby much of the documents relied upon by the agency were not supplied and that the opinion rendered was wholly unreasoned, a statement released on behalf of Modi said.
The court has given an option to the ED to issue a fresh show cause notice.
