The BCCI parted ways with its chief executive officer Rahul Johri after his long-pending resignation was accepted on Thursday. While the top bosses in the BCCI remained tight-lipped about the development, a senior official in the know of things told PTI that they have decided to accept his resignation letter sent on December 27. "Rahul Johri's resignation has been accepted. He was earlier given an extension till April 30, but this time it has been accepted," a BCCI veteran told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

It could not be exactly ascertained why the BCCI suddenly decided to accept his resignation.

However, there are conjectures about certain classified documents of the Board being leaked in public domain and fingers have been internally raised at Johri.

A former BCCI office-bearer raised a few questions.
