New Delhi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday told a Delhi court that no "injustice" is being done to sacked IPL commissioner Lalit Modi in the ongoing inquiry against him on an IPL bidding issue and he has not yet challenged the proceedings of disciplinary committee.

The BCCI made the submissions on a plaint filed by Modi against the Board, its president N Srinivasan, disciplinary committee members Arun Jaitley, Jyotiraditya Scindia and others seeking a declaration from the court that the committee is "biased" against him and has not conducted the proceedings so far in a "fair and transparent" manner.

Senior advocate Gopal Subramaniam, who appeared for BCCI, said it is a "serious charge" that the Board is manipulating the proceedings before the disciplinary committee and if it is so, Modi should have sought a judicial review of the inquiry proceedings but he has not done it so far.
