New Delhi: CBI will begin a full-fledged
probe into the corruption charges in projects related to the
Commonwealth Games after the CAG, CVC and IT department share
documents or submit a report on their investigations.
"The Comptroller and Auditor General, Central
Vigilance Commission, Income Tax are all doing their own
investigations. Let them investigate. Right now they are doing
the investigations and all documents are with them," CBI
Director Ashwini Kumar said.

"Once they (other agencies) give us the documents or
give their report to us, then we will get in," he told PTI
here today.

The Income Tax Department has seized large number of
documents during its two rounds of raids conducted this month
at the premises of various contractors and firms connected
with the Games.

Official sources said various agencies have already
approached the I-T department for information and sharing of
files.
The department, which has in its custody a large
number of documents including those relating to the contracts
awarded by the Games Organising Committee, would share
them with various government agencies to streamline the probe,
the sources said.

These documents could form the basis of any further
cases that could be registered by the ED or even the CBI, they
said.
