The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday registered one more first information report (FIR) on the alleged irregularities in Commonwealth Games. The agency also named the director general of Games Organising Committee (OC), VK Verma, as one of the accused.

The FIR, CBI’s fourth in its probe into the alleged irregularities into the conduct of the Games pertained to the award of R668-crore worth of contracts to four foreign firms for the supply of equipment and furnishings on rent.

Though the FIR does not mention OC chief Suresh Kalmadi, it was lodged shortly after the agency grilled him for nearly nine hours on Wednes-day over the irregularities.

In relation to its investigation into the irregularities, the CBI also searched 10 places including the office and residential premises of the accused persons. “Documents relevant to the ongoing investigation were seized,” a CBI spokesperson said.
