Agencies to quiz NC patriarch again, findings to be made public soon
After month long halt, JKCA probe to resume

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 9: The infamous Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) scam is going to haunt NC Patriarch Dr Farooq Abdullah- this time seriously as union government is resuming the probe activity once again after a month long halt.
Due to the scrapping of Article 370 and the pre-emotive measures taken to avoid any law and order issue, the probe pertaining to JKCA scam was halted for a while.
Now, reports inform that the investigations are being resumed shortly. There are also reported that the probe will be expedited so that its findings could be made public without further delay.
It was on November 24, 2014 that a New Delhi based news organsaition published its detailed report over the scam in Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) with investigations affirming direct involvement of Dr Farooq who is the father of the former JK chief minister Omar Abdullah.
The news organization had claimed that Dr Abdullah, along with nine JKCA office-bearers, are offenders under Sections 406, 168 and 120-B of the RPC for making the sports body a lending agency and for operating many bogus accounts.
The JK cricket scam had unmasked that as once the name of Dr. Abdullah came to fore as accused number 5 in the FIR No. 27/2012, the investigators were specifically told to go slow. Reports informed Early Times that even the FIR was kept confidential.
The then chief minister and son of Dr Farooq after sensing trouble for his father had reportedly slowed down the process of investigation into the case, fearing public resentment.
There was no arrest made of any person involved in the scam as if even one person would have been arrested, police would have been legally-bound to file charges within 60 days of his arrest.
Earlier, in 2014 ,the former JKCA chairman Mohammad Aslam Goni while demanding a thorough probe into the multi crore scam of JKCA had said he would make facts of the scam public.
Goni said he wrote a detailed mail to JKCA president Dr Farooq Abdullah advising him not to hold any elections at this time and that the action against the accused must be initiated so that the career of state's budding cricketers could be saved. "No action was taken and no action is expected to be taken on ground."
While reacting to the statement of the Dr Farooq that Ehsan Mirza had submitted Rs 2 crore post-dated cheques, Goni stated that the same has no relevance as according to him there is more than Rs 22 crore embezzlement in the association and that Ehsan Mirza himself has given crores of rupees to various persons of the association.
Goni claimed further that Manzoor Waheed the then vice chairman of the JKCA admitted before him that Mirza has given him Rs 14 lakhs for printing of his book. "Javeed Kitab received Rs 65 lakhs from Mirza. Another person namely Gazanfar received one crore and 25 lakh rupees from Ehsan Mirza that too the receipt of the association was issued against the amount."
The irony is that Gazanfar later stated that Mirza gave him the money for the business and the amount was issued to him as loan. "What logic this statement contains. This is the money of our children and the people of the association simply plundered it." Goni maintained that he was the first person who became the first informant of the scam and informed police about the same. "Yes, I admitted before the press in Srinagar at that time that the embezzlement of the money is reported in the association."
He added that the other members of the association pressurized police to frame him so that pressure could built up against him from speaking to the press. "I have left everything to Allah and he is my supporter and guide. I was silent only because I want association and its interests to be safeguarded. I am really scared that the BCCI should not disaffiliate JKCA. I want the involved persons to be brought to the book."
Goni revealed further that there are already Rs 70 to 80 crore pending with the BCCI and no efforts are being made to release that amount. Commenting over the recently held elections of the JKCA, Goni stated that he has no personal grudges against anyone there but unfortunately among the persons holding the important posts at present, some are accused of misusing the funds.
Meanwhile, the bank details since Dr Abdullah became president on October 14, 2001, suggested that the JKCA has opened 18 bogus bank accounts, which don't find mention in the records and annual statements.
Reports informed that twelve accounts were opened in the Khanyar branch in Srinagar of Jammu and Kashmir Bank and six accounts in the Cargo branch.
Investigators reportedly had also found an account in the Centurion Bank of Punjab in Jammu (later merged with HDFC Bank) in the personal name of one Ramesh Mahajan, with the address of the cricket association office in Gandhi Nagar, Jammu.
Around Rs 20 lakh has been swindled through this account, with no explanation coming from office-bearers. JKCA treasurer Ahsan Mirza also opened an account in the bank, transacted Rs 4.6 crore upto 2009 and closed it subsequently.
As per the reports Dr Farooq had also distributed money as loans to 50 individuals, mostly its own members and some companies.
