Former BCCI president Anurag Thakur has tendered an "unconditional" apology to the Supreme Court.  

Thakur's "unequivocal" apology, PTI reported, stated that it was never his intention to undermine the majesty of the court.

"I humbly submit that it was never the intention of the deponent to undermine the majesty of this court and since unintentionally some kind of misinformation and miscommunication has occured, I unhesitatingly tender my unconditional and unequivocal apology to this court," PTI quoted the affidavit as saying.

The court has asked Thakur for the apology on July 7.

And it had asked him to tender the apology in person on July 14.

In return, the court had hinted, it would close the contempt of court case against him. 

The court had charged Thakur with contempt because he had written to the ICC -- after the Supreme Court had removed him as BCCI president -- saying the BCCI's autonomy was being undermined.
