Under fire: Jagmohan Dalmiya

Indian cricket bosses have filed an official complaint with police chiefs in Mumbai (Bombay) as they pursue their case against Jagmohan Dalmiya.

Former Board of Control for Cricket in India president Dalmiya is alleged to have "misappropriated" official funds.

The papers filed accuse Dalmiya of a "criminal breach of trust" in events centred on the 1996 World Cup.

Dalmiya said: "There is no truth in the allegations. The BCCI management has a single point agenda to malign me."

He went on: "I have not seen the papers and therefore cannot comment in detail.

"But from time to time, all details as asked for by the present BCCI management have been furnished by me."

Meanwhile, a close associate of Mr Dalmiya, U N Bannerjee has filed a defamation case against the present board vice-president Lalit Modi.

Modi had claimed Banerjee earned more money from the BCCI, which he represented as a lawyer, than India captain Rahul Dravid because of his proximity to Dalmiya.

Bannerjee told the BBC: "The allegation that I earned more than Dravid from April to November 2005 is bogus."

Modi was unavailable for comment.

Dalmiya was the most powerful man in Indian cricket for two decades, and helped the board become the world's richest sporting body.
