After skipping investigations on earlier fixed date of October 31, Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association chief and BJP MP Anurag Thakur is likely to appear before vigilance officials for questioning over the affairs of the sports body on November 11. The Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau has summoned Thakur to join the investigations in a case of cheating and misappropriation registered against the sports body on November 11 at its office in Dharamsala.

The BJP MP chose to appear before the vigilance bureau on October 24, which also happened to be his birthday. With vigilance officials not being available, Anurag could not be questioned.

The vigilance bureau had earlier sent a questionnaire to him regarding certain queries on the HPCA and its affairs to which he had already replied. However, with the investigating agency looking into the alleged revenue and forest violations, some more facts have come to light. HPCA sources said Anurag would most probably appear before the vigilance bureau on November 11.
