Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Thursday parried questions on reports claiming that she has been blamed for irregularities in Commonwealth Games works by a probe committee.

"I have got it through media and I don't have any idea about the report," Dikshit said.

Top officials indicated that Delhi government did not get any communication from the Prime Minister's Office on the VK Shunglu Committee report. "We don't have any idea about it," a senior official said.

Media reports claimed that the Shunglu Committee, looking into alleged irregularities in Games works has indicted Delhi Lt-Governor Tejinder Khanna and Dikshit, among others, for delays and losses in projects.

The panel submitted two reports - one on the Games Village and the other on city's infrastructure development for the sports event - that nails the role of Delhi government, its agencies and central agencies, according to media reports.

The committee was appointed in October 2010 to probe allegations of corruption and other irregularities in the Games.
