Anticipatory bail rejected of HPCA officials- all gone underground


Dharamsala, November 22, 2013: The anticipatory bail plea of Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association's (HPCA) spokesman Sanjay Sharma has been rejected on Friday, by the Indora circuit bench of additional district and sessions court. The court had earlier rejected the bail plea of three other HPCA officials, including treasurer Attar Singh Negi, vice-president Surender Thakur and joint secretary PremThakur in the same case. All four officials have now gone underground to avoid arrest.
This bail was sort on a case of cheating and misappropriation by the vigilance bureau of the state which was registered against the HPCA on August 1 and Sanjay Sharma had applied for the anticipatory bail before the court of special judge on November 16. The case was registered in Dharamsala following an inquiry into alleged irregularities in the land allotment to the cricket body for constructing a five-star residential complex. The HPCA is also facing another case over damage to public property - demolition of a government building without permission.
