Ranchi: National Games Organising Committee
working chairman RK Anand was on Monday questioned by Jharkhand
Vigilance Bureau in connection with alleged financial
irregularities in the purchase of equipment for the 34th
National Games held in February.

Anand, who appeared before the Superintendent of Police
(Vigilance) PK Karn, said he was summoned to appear before it
but refused to divulge any details.

He, however, replied in the affirmative when asked
whether he was grilled by the Vigilance officer.

The general Secretary of Jharkhand Wrestling
Association, had complained with the vigilance bureau last
year and accused Anand, NGOC`s organising secretary HM
Hashmi, Treasurer Madhukant Pathak and former sports director
PC Mishra of financial irregularities in the purchase of
equipment for the games.

Based on his complaint, the Vigilance Bureau filed an
FIR on October 6 and conducted raids on the premises of some
of the NGOC office bearers.
