Action against anybody found guilty by Shunglu panel: Maken

"If anybody in the sports ministry is found guilty, action will be taken against him," said Maken on the sidelines of an event at the National Stadium.

The Shunglu panel in its sixth report made public Friday accused the sports ministry of feigning complete ignorance of former Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi decision to grant $7.2 million (Rs.33 crore) "without any authority or prior consultation" to 72 Commonwealth Games associations in various countries at the Montego Bay meeting in 2003 that allotted the Games to New Delhi.

"Although the ministry was aware of this announcement since it had answered a parliament question on 2nd Dec, 2003 on this subject, it feigned complete ignorance and seemed surprised," the panel said.
