The Lawyer Who Would Open The BCCI

From The Open magazine, a profile of Rahul Mehra, a do-gooder lawyer who won a lawsuit that made the BCCI — a supposedly private entity — liable to right to information requests. Good stuff, especially details on his follow-up act:

Mehra has since taken the whole cartel of other sports administrators to court. This PIL, filed last December, names among its respondents the Sports Authority of India, the Netaji Subhas National Institute of Sports, the Indian Olympic Association, the Amateur Athletics Federation of India, the Badminton Association of India, the All India Chess Federation, the All India Football Federation, Hockey India, the National Rifle Association of India, the All India Tennis Association, the Indian Weightlifting Federation and the Indian Amateur Boxing Federation.
