Chandigarh, May 15 (IANS) A court here Saturday issued notice to three officials of the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) for not paying the Rs.700,000 dues of a local hotel.
Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Development Corporation (CITCO), a semi-government corporation here, had filed a complaint in the court alleging that the ICL authorities had not paid the dues of hotel Mountview where the teams had stayed in 2008.
Mountview is a five-star hotel run by CITCO.
‘Out of the bill of Rs. 11 lakh, ICL officials have not paid nearly Rs.700,000. We had intimated them through mails, calls and even sent them various reminders. But they have not paid the money till date,’ a CITCO official said Saturday.
‘They asked us provide them detailed bills that we had submitted to them before January 2010. After seeing no developments, we had to approach the court.’
Chief Judicial Magistrate J.S. Sidhu Saturday issued notice to chief of accounts department, manager accounts and assistant vice president of Essel group that started the ICL.
The court has sought their reply July 26.
The first edition of the ICL, which was not recognized by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was held in November-December 2007.
