CBI chargesheets Farooq Abdullah in Rs 113 Cr J&K cricket body scam
Mumbai: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday filed a chargesheet against former J&K chief minister Farooq Abdullah and 3 others for alleged irregularities in J&K Cricket Association (JKCA) funds.
National Conference (NC) leader Abdullah and the 3 others have been charged under Ranbir Penal Code sections related to criminal conspiracy and breach of trust, news agency PTI reported quoting officials.
Abdullah was the president of the association when the alleged irregularities came into notice in the state cricket body between 2001 and 2011. It has reportedly been said that around Rs 113 crore was siphoned off by the JKCA office bearers from the association funds.
In January this year, the CBI had recorded the statement of the Abdullah over the multi-crore scam after the J&K High Court in November directed the agency to complete the investigation within three months.
Apart from Abdullah, JKCA General Secretary Saleem Khan, treasurer Mohammed Ahsan Mirza and J&K Bank executive Bashir Ahmed Mansir are also mentioned in the chargesheet.
