CBI chargesheets Farooq Abdullah, 3 others for alleged irregularities in JKCA

The CBI today filed a charge sheet against former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah and three others in a special court in Srinagar in connection with alleged irregularities and misappropriation of funds in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association, JKCA.

The agency has levelled charges of criminal conspiracy and criminal breach of trust under the Ranbir Penal Code against Farooq Abdullah, the then president of JKCA, Md Saleem Khan - the then general secretary, Ahsan Ahmad Mirza - the then treasurer and Bashir Ahmad Misgar, an executive in the J&K Bank.

The BCCI gave 112 crore rupees to the JKCA between 2002 and 2011 for the development of cricket facilities in the state. The agency has alleged that of this, 43.69 crore rupees were syphoned off and misappropriated by the accused. 

Earlier in January, the CBI recorded Farooq Abdullah's statement in connection with its probe. Hearing a PIL filed by two cricketers in September 2015, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court ordered CBI probe into the alleged scam. The alleged scam surfaced in 2012.
