BCCI Vice President Rajeev Shukla Receives Conflict of Interest Notice from Ethics Officer | Cricket News

MUMBAI: A complaint alleging conflict of interest has been filed against Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice chairman Rajeev Shukla by former Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) member Sanjeev Gupta.
The question of conflict of interest arises if a person occupies more than one position at the same time. The complaint against Shukla was lodged with the ethics officer of BCCI Justice (Retd) DK Jain.
“A complaint was received by the Ethics Officer of the Cricket Control Board in India (abbreviated as” BCCI “) from Mr. Sanjeev Gupta, pursuant to Rule 39 (2) (b) of the BCCI rules and regulations, concerning certain acts, allegedly constituting a “conflict of interest” against Mr. Rajeev Shukla, “the order reads.
“Before going any further on the complaint, I consider it necessary to verify the position of the BCCI and of the accused person – Mr. Rajeev Shukla on the said complaint,” he added.
As a result, BCCI and Shukla were invited to file their written response to the complaint within two weeks from Thursday, to the ethics officer. Other orders in this area will be passed subsequently.
Gupta had previously resigned from his AMPA membership after there were complaints that he was violating the association’s code of conduct. Known for his “conflict of interest” emails to BCCI, Gupta last year made allegations of conflict against current Indian skipper Virat Kohli. This after raising allegations of conflict against current BCCI Chairman Sourav Ganguly and Indian cricket legends like Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman.
