Rajeev Shukla might be asked to vacate his incumbent post of the Indian Premier League.
The Supreme Court appointed CoA has recommended dethroning IPL chairman, Rajeev Shukla along with three other officials in their seventh Status Report submitted on Thursday.
CoA had earlier asked for removing three BCCI officials in their fourth Status Report. It asked for removing CK Khanna, Amitabh Choudhary and Anirudh Chaudhary on the grounds of expiry of their three-year term as per BCCI constitution.
CoA has said that Shukla’s term has ended in September 2017 therefore, they need to hold an election for the selection of new office-bearers.
Vinod Rai led committee is also seeking SC on having an AGM (Annual General Meeting) without the formal adoption of the new constitution of BCCI recommended by Lodha Panel.

Reportedly, BCCI officials have challenged CoA saying that the term is counted not on the basis of calendar years but on the basis of AGM meetings.
Strained relations of BCCI and CoA:
A BCCI official quoted, ‘CoA is asking for the removal of officials but it has not summoned even one AGM in the last one year’.
‘He is rather busy finalizing players contract and dealing with issues that should not be their concern,’ he added.
The board last held an AGM in 2016.
