The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has banned journalist Boria Majumdar for two years after the investigating committee found him guilty of intimidating Wriddhiman Saha. The BCCI had formed a 3-member committee to investigate the case. BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla, treasurer Arun Dhumal, and Prabhtej Bhatia were the members.
Boria won’t be getting accreditation as a press member in India, and the cricketers will be told to refrain themselves from talking to him during the ban period. Also, he won’t get access to any BCCI members-owned association cricket facilities.
Earlier, Saha had shared screenshots of the chat with a journalist, which clearly showed the amount of pressure being put on the cricketer for the interview. Post the incident, former India players Virender Sehwag, Ravi Shastri, and many others had urged the BCCI to order a probe.
