New Delhi: Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) officials engaged in a fist fight during the state cricket body’s annual general meeting on Sunday. A DDCA release stated that all the members unanimously “passed the resolutions and agendas” but sources told PTI that the AGM had its share of drama. Blows were exchanged and ruling group’s joint secretary Rajan Manchanda was slapped by opposition’s Maqsood Alam during the meeting.A source said the AGM was “disrupted by supporters of general secretary Vinod Tihara after resolution 3, 4 and removal of its Ombudsman Justice (Retd) Badar Durrez Ahmed was defeated by almost 75 percent” of the members.The DDCA appointed Justice (Retd) Deepak Verma as its new Ombudsman replacing Badar, only a day after the latter asked DDCA members to exercise restraint. It was on Badar’s suggestion, that the proceedings at the AGM were video recorded.”The supporters of Vinod Tihara also manhandled MLA Shri Om Prakash Sharma and the attendance register was also snatched,” the source added.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
