Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association has been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the recent past. Recently a central probing agency has almost indicted Dr. Farooq Abdullah in a money laundering case in the same association when he was heading it a few years back.
Recently J&K High Court suspended the proposed elections for Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association after hearing a series of petitions by different stakeholders including the leading cricket clubs of the region.
The court after hearing the matter has said that elections of the office bearers of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association shall remain in abeyance till any final decision is taken in the matter.
While reserving its final decision in the matter, the court directed the ad-hoc expert committee appointed by it earlier to look after the routine affairs of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) and it was also made on the directions of court in this matter.
The JKCA elections were proposed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) which informed the Court that the association should have its permanent body urgently so that it functions smoothly and cricket activities are also revived in J&K, as this association has suffered lot due to the pending cases for the investigation of the earlier office bearer.
JKCA is without an elected body since May 2017 and its affairs are observed and conducted by the two administrators and a CEO appointed by the court to ensure free and fair elections of JKCA as the term of JKCA has expired in the month of May 2017.
