The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) will give some more fresh cases to CBI to probe alleged criminal conspiracy and graft by certain government employees in carrying out Commonwealth Games-related works.

Sources in the anti-corruption watchdog said large-scale financial and administrative irregularities have been found in about seven cases carried out by certain government agencies here.

"We have found irregularities in inviting tender for works and giving undue favours to the selected vendors. Besides, there has been documentary evidence showing involvement of employees and owners of private firms who carried out the works," a senior CVC official said.

The matter was discussed in a review meeting of the Commission with CBI officials last week. "CBI has taken all relevant documents and Commission's findings on the matter. They will register preliminary enquiries after due investigation," he said.

The CVC is investigating at least 71 projects worth several crores executed by civic and construction agencies in the run-up to the Games.
