Board Of Control For Cricket In India Says IPL Security Charges 'Excessively High'

Terming the charges levied by police for security during Indian Premier League matches played at DY Patil Stadium in neighboring Navi Mumbai in '10 as "excessively high," the Board of Control for Cricket in India "has urged the Home Secretary of Maharashtra to fix reasonable rates, comparable to those charged by other states," according to the PTI. The high court "is presently hearing public interest litigation filed by Santosh Pachlag regarding non-payment of over Rs 5 crore ($912,000) by BCCI to the state police on account of security for IPL matches played at DY Patil Stadium." The BCCI has further said that "it is not liable to pay the charges, but agreed in the interest of the sport" (PTI, 3/6).
