Anurag Thakur tenders unconditional and unequivocal apology in SC


The apex court had in December, last said that Thakur was prima facie culpable under charges of contempt of court and perjury. It had noted that he apparently lied about seeking a letter from the International Cricket Council to assert that one of the Lodha panel recommendations – directing for a nominee from the Comptroller and Auditor General in the BCCI – amounted to governmental interference.

Thakur and BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke were subsequently sacked by the court on January 2 over non-compliance with its orders.

Though he expressed his apology earlier too, the apex court had on July 7 expressed its dissatisfaction over the affidavit, noting his language was not unqualified.

In a fresh affidvait filed on Thursday, Thakur said, “It was never the intention of the deponent to undermine the majesty of this Hon’ble Court and since unintentionally some kind of misinformation or miscommunication has occurred, I unhesitatingly tender my unconditional and unequivocal apology to this Hon’ble Court.”

The apex court would consider his affidavit on Friday. Thakur was earlier told to remain present in the court.
