The plea was mentioned before a vocation bench of Justices AM Sapre and Ashok Bhushan which refused to hear it saying it is part-heard matter and regular bench is already hearing it. Counsel appearing for CAB said that it is an urgent matter as the election is scheduled for May 22 and no prior 21 days' notice has been given for the elections.
He also sought implementation of the Lodha Committee recommendations under which a candidate, who has been chargesheeted in a case, cannot contest the BCCI election for office bearers.
The apex bench asked the counsel for CAB to mention the matter before vacation Registrar for listing it before another bench noting that it is already being heard by regular bench.
A bench headed by Chief Justice TS Thakur, which is already hearing the matter, had earlier pulled up the BCCI for resisting the Justice RM Lodha-led committee's recommendation on capping the age of its office bearers to 70 years.

The current proceedings in the apex court are the outcome of the petition filed by CAB through its secretary Aditya Kumar Verma who alleged large scale irregularities.
