Bagan officials confirm Supreme Court move
The Mohun Bagan officials (not court-appointed Special Officers) met at club president Swapan Sadhan Bose’s residence Friday and have officially decided to move the Supreme Court “to try and get a solution to the current legal problem and impasse in the club”.
This idea had been expressed earlier by Bose, and with the player payments crisis still looming large and administrative problems rampant, this was a move that the officials have ratified. No date has been fixed, neither have the counsel been decided upon.
That was the first in the agenda of the meeting.
In the second, miscellaneous, it was decided to take disciplinary action against a couple of club members for “misbehaving” in the club. It was also decided that the club tent and the club lawns will be closed after 7pm for security reasons.
The meeting was attended, among others, by Bose, secretary Anjan Mitra and assistant secretary Balaram Chowdhury.
The 36th state shooting meet has started at the Ichapore Rifle Club. There will be a total of 34 events in .22 bore rifle/pistol, air rifle, air pistol. Events started Friday but none was completed. The meet is being held under the aegis of the West Bengal Rifle Association.
