The Supreme Court remove Anurag Thakur from BCCI President

The apex court also removed Ajay Shirke from the post of BCCI Secretary. Apart from removing both Thakur and Shirke from their posts, the court also issued show cause notices to both, asking why contempt and perjury proceedings be not initiated against them.
