CBI to probe cricket fund scam in Kashmir

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Thursday ordered a CBI probe into the multi-crore-rupee cricket fund scam allegedly involving some office bearers of the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA), including former chief minister Farooq Abdullah.

The division bench announced the order in an open court, while the detailed order copy would be issued later in the day.

The petitioners had pleaded that investigations into the alleged fund scam by the local police would not be fair because of the political clout of the people involved.

After the scam surfaced in 2012, the BCCI which funded the JKCA for promotion of cricket stopped its funding.
