Srinagar: Union Minister Farooq Abdullah rejected all the allegations against him in the alleged multi-crore scam in the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association and said he has written to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and a probe is on in this regard.
"We do not have the actual amount of money. We have to yet find out. We have written it to the BCCI. As far as Mehbooba is saying, she said many things, our motive is to get money back," Abdullah, who is also the president of the JKCA, told a national TV channel.
According to reports on Saturday, police raided J&K Cricket Association office and seized all records. They filed an FIR against the association members.
After a report of corruption in the state cricket body, which is run by Farooq Abdulla, surfaced in the media, the opposition PDP went up in arms against the government and demanded action against the Union Minister.
“They (JKCA and its management) are making some officials scapegoat and letting big fishes off the hook. Unfortunately, they are again trying to make some officials scapegoat instead of instituting an inquiry and putting questions to Dr Farooq Abdullah (JKCA chairman)," PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti said.
