NEW DELHI, June 16: Former Supreme Court judge DK Jain will continue as BCCI�s ethics officer and ombudsman after getting a one-year extension from the cricket Board.
Jain was appointed by the Supreme Court in February 2019 as BCCI�s first ever ombudsman. He was later given the additional role of ethics officer. His term had ended on February 29 this year but his contract was renewed only last week.
�I resumed office last week and it is another one-year term as ethics officer and ombudsman. Considering the COVID-19 situation, I will be conducting hearings virtually,� Jain told PTI.
Jain still has pending cases to close. He has not yet given his verdict on conflict of interest accusations against Mayank Parikh, a former liaison officer of the Indian cricket team. One of the complaints against Parikh was that he ran six clubs in Mumbai. � PTI
