Justice Murari Mohan Ghosh, directed that the matter would come up for hearing on the said date. The court, however, did not pass any order of injunction as prayed for by the petitioners Bengal Cricket Lovers' Forum on distribution of tickets for the matches. Appearing for the petioners, lawyer Ajay Sanyal contended that according to CAB rules, life, annual and associate members were entitled to watch all matches - except charity ties - at Eden Gardens free of cost. He claimed that the rights and privileges of all the CAB members were being infringed upon by asking them to pay for viewing the matches to be held here from April 20. CAB counsel Narendranath Chakraborty sought time from the court saying his client had not yet received any notice from the petitioners and as such was not prepared for the case. Nobody appeared for the other respondents, including RCE of filmstar Shah Rukh Khan. The Bengal Cricket Lovers' Forum has been floated by nearly 6,000 CAB members. RCE is the franchisee owner of the team 'Kolkata Knight Riders' that would organise the matches ZCZC PRI GEN SPO .KOLKATA CAL9 SPORT IPL-CASE Kolkata court asks Red Chillies to file affidavit in IPL case Kolkata, Mar 28 (PTI) A city court today directed petitioners and Red Chillies Entertainment to file affidavits by April 8 on a plea seeking free tickets for the 31,000 Cricket Association of Bengal members during the upcoming Indian Premier League ties at the Eden Gardens.
