New Delhi: Former Solicitor General Gopal Subramanium, who has been chosen to probe the allegations of financial irregularities in the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), has said that he will question Finance Minister Arun Jaitley - who headed the Delhi cricket body for 14 years - if needed.

According to a report published in IBN website on Tuesday, Subramanium has said that he will begin probing the DDCA scam only after getting a go-ahead from the Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung.

 

"There is absolutely no personal or any other interest except the game of cricket. When I enter this enquiry, I will start with a clean chit image of his and I have made this very clear to CM Kejriwal also. This is an enquiry which will follow due process,'' Subramaniam was quoted as saying.

Subramanium also said that he will ensure a fair probe against all those under scanner and not let any politics affect the investigation.

 

"I am too seasoned. Please understand whichever government it is, I am not going to play politics at all. It is an open inquiry, I made this very clear to CM that this enquiry will follow due process," he added.

Subramanium said he accepted Delhi Government's request to head a Commission of Inquiry into affairs of DDCA as its purpose is "positive" and called Finance Minister Arun Jaitley a valued and distinguished colleague of his for almost 37 years.

The Delhi Cabinet on Monday approved setting up of the one member Commission of Inquiry under Subramanium to probe alleged irregularities in Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) which was headed by Jaitley for around 14 years till 2013.
