CHENNAI: The Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA), who are in charge of BCCI, have sent a second show cause notice to the body’s logistics manager Mayank Parikh for failing to disclose his conflict of interest.

Express had reported in the past about how Parikh, who owns a total of six clubs (Bombay Union Sports Club, Victory Cricket Club, Youth Cricket Club, Errant Cricketers, Young Boys Cricket Club and Super Stars Sports Club) had failed to disclose it to BCCI and continued to be on the board’s payroll. As per BCCI’s policy, that constitutes direct conflict of interest.

Sources close to CoA indicated to this newspaper that Parikh’s reply to the first show cause notice was not convincing. In fact, he seems to have hidden the fact that he is the signatory for all the clubs that have been mentioned above.

“His reply didn’t have mention of him being the signatory. He mentioned about his ownership, but being a signatory is a whole different thing altogether, as it means direct conflict of interest. It was only after CoA did a thorough check that they came to know about this,” a source close to CoA told Express.

Though BCCI CEO Rahul Johri had shot off a show cause notice to Parikh earlier, the latter continued to be involved in the activities relating to his capacity as logistics manager. In fact, he even accompanied the Indian team for the second Test against West Indies in Hyderabad.

Express understands that CoA member Diana Edulji was not satisfied with Parikh’s reply, and asked employees to conduct a thorough check.
