CWG: ED, I-T dept to turn the heat on

Last Updated 18 October 2010, 15:14 IST

Official sources said both ED and I-T officials are in the final stages of scrutinising the documents that they had obtained about the Games.

The agencies are also likely to push in for handing over certain documents related to monetary transactions undertaken by the Organising Committee.

Both the investigating agencies have already obtained a "fair amount" of details about the banking transactions undertaken by the Games body.

Sources said the agencies will now turn the heat on the entire case since the Games have ended.

The ED as well as the I-T dept were already probing allegations of corruption committed by the OC much before the Games.

Though no case has been registered so far, sources said they were conducting a 'source probe'. This kind of a probe is undertaken by various agencies to find out if there are any foul play in any transaction and deal.

Under this, the agencies can also conduct raids and call for documents. If any thing is found to be against the stipulated laws, then only a case is registered.

Meanwhile, the Central Vigilance Commission is also looking into at least 22 more Commonwealth Games-related construction and procurement works carried out by different government agencies here for alleged financial irregularities.

Comptroller and Auditor General have also tightened the noose on all the agencies for alleged irregularities.

The agency has formed a huge team to audit all CWG related files and will come out with a report in three months.
