Chouhan’s appeal against the order of Justice Kathawala (which upheld the order of the Stewards/ Board of Appeal) was heard by the Division bench of Justice Dharmadhikari and Gautam Patel in the Mumbai High Court today. They refused to admit his plea for a stay and upheld the earlier order of a 6 month suspension.
