Srigar, July 21: Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday insisted that he remained the president of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA). Describing the JKCA meeting held here on Monday that ousted him as “illegal and a crimil trespass”, he told the media: “I am the president of the JKCA and continue to be so.”
Abdullah distributed copies of a crimil complaint filed by him on Monday.
It said that some people, including Mehboob Iqbal, who was on Monday elected the JKCA chairman, ransacked the JKCA office at Sowar after breaking open the locks.
“They trespassed and illegally removed some documents pertaining to the JKCA of which the elected office bearers are the legal custodians,” the complaint said.
He said the police had not lodged a first information report (FIR), and quoted a police officer as saying that he would speak to his seniors before lodging the FIR. The tiol Conference leader said the court had stayed Monday’s JKCA proceedings, adding that he was sure “the so-called election (of Monday) will not stand judicial scrutiny”. IANS
