The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices to former BCCI president N Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah, of the Saurashtra Cricket Association, for participating in the June 26 Special General Meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. 

The SC-appointed Committee of Administrators had, in its fourth report submitted to the court, accused Srinivasan and Shah of disrupting the Special General Meeting. 

The meeting had been convened to build consensus among BCCI members on adoption of the Lodha Panel reforms. 

"The SGM held on June 26 was manifestly disruptive. Before the meeting, a substantial consensus has been arrived at as a result of mutual deliberations between the CoA and various constituent members of BCCI," ANI quoted the CoA`s report stated. 

"The SGM on June 26 was attended by various persons who are disqualified from being office bearers of the BCCI and/or their respective state/member associations including N Srinivasan (represented the TNCA) and Niranjan Shah (Saurashtra CA) amongst others," it added. 

Describing the Srinivasan-Shah duo as disqualified members, the CoA further accused them of having a vested interest in wanting to stall the implementation of the reforms. 

The Supreme Court has adjourned the matter till September 24.
