JKCA members question integrity of panel
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 16: Several members of J&K Cricket Association (JKCA) today raised eyebrows over an in-house committee ordered to probe multi-crore scam, questioning the integrity of some constituent members of the panel.
Under pressure the JKCA president Dr Farooq Abdullah had last week constituted the committee to probe the allegations.
In a statement issued today more than two dozens members of the JKCA including the working committee members, selectors, coaches, have united to raise the question on constitution of the committee.
“We welcome the initiative (in-house probe committee) but the appointment of some members in the panel who are under scanner and are people of dubious integrity has shocked us,” the statement said.
“All the four members appointed by the president are a part of the group that boycotted the JKCA election on June 23, 2011 which was held under the observance of Justice Bashir-Ud-Din (Rtd.) who was appointed by the High Court and Sudhir Dabir appointed by the BCCI” the statement added.
It said that one member, Sham Saroop Kalsotra is himself signatory to the in house financial audit for the year 2006-2009, where he had given clean chit to the expenditure and the financial statement. “How can then he be made a member to enquire into the shortfalls in which he had earlier himself given a no objection report for getting the same passed by the working committee,” the statement said.
“We also strongly object to the appointment of Manzoor Wazir as the coordinator for the in house probe committee as he was the co member with Sham Saroop Kalsotra who gave a clean chit for the expenditure for the year 2006-2009” the statement added.
Since Manzoor Wazir is himself under the scanner for releasing an amount of more than Rs 5 crore without seeking proper approvals, hitherto, he can’t be made a party to the probe, the statement said.
“Since the matter with regards to the genuineness of the members of the clubs and the report of the Hon’ble observer of the High Court is already pending before the Court, any such steps taken by the committee appointed by the president to ascertain the genuineness of the members may be construed as pre judging a sub-judice case,” the statement said.
“We therefore request you to reconstitute an enquiry committee comprising members of proven integrity from different factions & institutions.
The members who called for the constitution of a new committee are: Ashok Gupta, Harsh Nayyar, Randhir Singh Jamwal, Ashok Dutta, Dinesh Jasroita, Prithvi Vaid, Ashwani Gupta, Shahid Parvez, Prof BD Damral, Salim Ul Rehman, Surinder Singh Bagal, Dhyan Singh Bahu, Ranjeet Kalra, Vijay Sharma, Dr. Vinod Bakshi, Varinder Sharma, Rohit Malhotra, Suresh Singh, Hardev Singh, Mohan Lal Chouhan, Ashok Singh, Ghulam Muhammad, Idrees Gandroo, Molvi Ijaaz, GM Ronga and Sami Ahmad Naqash.
