Supreme Court sacks Anurag Thakur, Twitter says ‘justice at last’


In a dramatic development, the Supreme Court on Monday removed the BJP MP and the BCCI president, Anurag Thakur from the post of the Indian cricket body’s chief. The court also removed the BCCI secretary, Ajay Shirke.

Thakur was also issued contempt notice by the Supreme Court in alleged perjury case. He was earlier accused by the apex court of having lied on oath.
