Justice (Retd) Deepak Verma will be the Delhi and District Cricket Association ombudsman. The former justice of the Supreme Court of India will replace Justice (Retd) Badar Durrez Ahmed, former Chief Justice of the Jammu & Kashmir High Court.
The DDCA on Sunday has appointed Justice (Retd) Deepak Verma as its new ombudsman during its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Delhi. The AGM, first in 18 months, was marred by violence and uproar.
A DDCA release stated that all the members unanimously “passed all the resolutions and agendas” but sources in the controversy-plagued cricket body informed that the AGM had its share of drama.
“Honourable Justice Deepak Verma (Retd) was appointed as the new Ombudsman by the members,” the DDCA release said.
“There were five agendas for the meeting –passing of annual accounts, appointment of statutory auditors, reappointment of retiring directors, adoption of new articles and appointment of Ombudsman,” it added.
Braving the chilling cold, members came in large numbers for the AGM, including former treasurer Narinder Batra and SP Bansal.
It was also learnt that the DDCA could have its new president in January.
