ED summons Darbari for questioning
New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate has
asked suspended CWG Organising Committee Joint Director
General T S Darbari to appear before it on Monday in connection
with its probe into alleged financial irregularities relating
to the Queen`s Baton Relay in London.
Official sources said Darbari, a close aide of OC
chairman Suresh Kalmadi, has been asked to explain certain
financial transactions undertaken during the QBR last year.
Darbari has also been asked to bring all documents
related to money transactions and grant of contracts to
different agencies in London.
Sources said this has been done in the wake of the
British authorities referring to the High Commission a matter
regarding A M Films, a little-known London-based company, to
which a huge sum of money was transferred through the Royal
Bank of Scotland.
The authorities in London have already begun a probe
into the dealings of the firm and had contacted the India High
Commission which subsequently forwarded the details to the
Sports Ministry here for follow-up action.
The Organising Committee had suspended Darbari, Deputy
Director General Sanjay Mohindroo and Joint Director General
(Accounts and Finance) M Jaychandran on August 5 for their
alleged role in the Queen`s Baton Relay in London.
