Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul fined 20 lakhs each
On Saturday, the BBC’s Lokpal DK Jain imposed a fine of 20 lakh rupees on the people of India cricket team Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul on making objectionable comments about women in a TV show.
In an order published on the BCCI website, Justice DK Jain has written that no further action will be taken on Pandya and Rahul.
This controversy started when the controversial interview of both of them was broadcast in the first week of January in the ‘Coffee with Karan‘ program. During that period, a temporary ban was imposed on them. For this reason, both of them did not play in five ODIs.
After this, he lifted the ban on them when the two had asked for an unconditional apology on their controversial remark against women. Both are selected for the 15-member team of India selected for the World Cup. The World Cup is starting in the UK from May 30.
Vinod Rai, chief of the BCCI’s governing committee, formed the Supreme Court himself when the comment of both came out. However, this case could not be investigated if the BCCI’s Lokpal was not deployed.
The Supreme Court later appointed Justice DK Jain as the Lokpal. This month, Justice Jain summoned Pandya and Rahul for his statements.
Justice Jain has given instructions to both of them to pay 20-20 lakh rupees to the widows of 10 soldiers of 10 paramilitary forces.
This amount will be given through ‘Veer App of India’. This app is designed to provide support to the families of paramilitary forces.
Apart from this, the order has been given to the remaining 10-10 lakh rupees in the funds of the blind visually impaired Indian cricket team.
There was a lot of criticism on the players’ social media after the statements of both of them appeared in the TV program.
