The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday could not file the charge sheet in multi crore scam in Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) in a local court as the accused were not present.
As a team of CBI came to file the charge sheet in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM), Srinagar, the accused, including former chief Minister Dr Farooq Abdullah were not present. The court directed the CBI that all the accused should remain present in the court when the charge sheet is filed.
It was learnt that Dr Abdullah, who was chairman of the JKCA, was out of the country while other accused, who were present in the court also left when CBI could approach the court for filing the charge sheet. The CBI had sent a summon to all the accused to remain present in the court. The case pertained to alleged embezzlement of over 112 crore at the JKCA in 2012.
