IPL Auctions Violate Human Rights, Says PIL

"

MUMBAI: A public interest litigation has urged the Bombay High Court to stop the public auction of players for Indian Premier League matches saying it violates their constitutional and human rights.

The PIL filed by Aam Aadmi Lok Manch has said Board of Control for Cricket in India has allowed public auction of players from the first to the sixth edition of IPL matches and has expressed apprehension that such auctions will continue. It added that auction of human beings is an infringement of human rights under United Nations charter on human rights.

The petition said at the auction held on February 2, 2013 in Chennai licenses were issued to eight teams. "The players were sold virtually i.e in their absence,'' the petition said. The PIL has urged the court to terminate the licenses and direct BCCI to refrain from any public auction of human beings in future.

Manchs advocate P P Goyal mentioned the matter before a division bench of Justice A M Khanwilkar and Justice A P Bhangale who posted the hearing on April 25, 2013.

IPL or PIL - BOTH make me sick, but such PIL's should be thrown out as soon as they are submitted. What a waste of time.
