Not involved in JKCA scam: Farooq

Union Minister Farooq Abdullah on Monday rejected as unfortunate allegations of his involvement in the multi-crore Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) scam, an issue which also rocked the state Assembly.

“I have not taken a penny in any form from JKCA. There is no question of any money being bungled. The tarnishing of my image is unfortunate,” said Farooq, who heads the JKCA.

Farooq’s assertion came on a day when People’s Democratic Party raised the issue in the Assembly demanding a CBI probe after moving an adjournment motion notice which was rejected by Speaker Mohmmad Akbar Lone. PDP members later staged a walk out.

J&K Police on Saturday registered a case against two former officials of JKCA following allegations of misappropriation of funds, received by the body from the BCCI.
