BCCI-CEO-Rahul-Johri

New Delhi, Nov 21: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday dismissed the sexual harassment allegations against the cricketing body’s Chief Executive Officer, Rahul Johri.

Chairman of Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) stated Rahul Johri should continue as the CEO of Board of Control for Cricket in India and resume his duties.

The decision taken is as a natural consequence, since there is no consensus between two members of CoA regarding what action should be taken against Rahul Johri.

The independent probe committee had submitted its report to the Committee of Administrators (COA) earlier in the day.

The panel that probed allegations against Johri comprised former Allahabad High Court judge Justice Rakesh Sharma, former Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Barkha Singh and lawyer Veena Gowda.

Johri was accused of sexual harassment in an anonymous social media post, which has since been deleted. He has denied the allegation in response to the show cause notice issued by the COA.
