Two months after he was issued a contempt notice for filing some false statements and affidavit in the Lodha panel Vs BCCI case, former BCCI President Anurag Thakur today appeared personally before the Supreme Court bench and tendered an unconditional and unqualified apology.Thakur told a bench headed by justice Dipak Misra that he had never intended to file any false information before the apex court and filed an affidavit explaining the circumstances under which the averments made by him led to the initiation of contempt proceedings.

“I (Thakur) have tendered my unconditional and unqualified apology and I have explained the circumstances. I had not intended to file any false information”, senior advocate P S Patwalia, appearing for Thakur, told the bench

The bench fixed the matter for hearing on April 17 and also exempted Thakur from personal appearance on that day

The bench headed by then Chief Justice T S Thakur had on January 2 removed BCCI President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke for continued defiance regarding implementation of Lodha panel reforms.

Anurag Thakur was in deeper trouble as the bench also issued show cause notice wherein he is to explain why perjury and contempt proceedings shall not be initiated against him for making certain false statements on oath before the court.
