Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Director General V K Verma today appeared before the Enforcement Directorate in New Delhi for questioning in connection with its probe into alleged financial irregularities in the Queen's Baton Relay in London last year.

Official sources said Verma came to ED office at 11.15 a.m. and brought relevant papers related to the contract given to a UK firm, A M Films, for QBR.

They said the official will be asked to explain all monetary transaction and contract details.

The ED has registered a case under Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) in this regard. Earlier, ED had questioned suspended Joint Director General T S Darbari, a close aide of OC chairman Suresh Kalmadi, in this regard.

British authorities had referred to the Indian 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 around three months back. The authorities in London have already begun a probe into the dealings of the firm.

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.
