EOW finds evidence againt ex-BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmia for misappropriation of World Cup funds?
Former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmia is in deep trouble after the Economic Offences Wing of Mumbai Police reportedly found documents that could implicate him for allegedly misappropriating Rs 2.90 crore from a BCCI account opened in connection with the Cricket World Cup in 1996.
Jagmohan Dalmia has denied any involvement in the scam.
The account was opened in Indian Overseas Bank’s Bhowanipore branch in West Bengal and Jagmohan Dalmia was authorized to operate it. The 1996 world cup was jointly hosted by India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
In 2006 Sharad Pawar became Board president. The account was closed that year, but BCCI had asked Dalmia to provide a statement of funds used from that account.
But there was no account of the expenses maintained in BCCI office during Dalmia’s tenure, reports said.
