Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Joint Director General M Jaychandran today failed to appear before the Enforcement Directorate which is probing alleged financial irregularities in works related to the event.
According to sources, Jaychandran sought an adjournment from his scheduled appearance from the agency which was supposed to question him about the bidding process and other procedures for the Queen's Baton Relay in London last year.
However, the reason for his non-appearance was not immediately known and he is expected to be given a fresh date to present himself before the agency.
The ED has already grilled sacked Organising Committee JDG T S Darbari and suspended DDG Sanjay Mohindroo last week.
The ED has scrutinised the bid documents that led to the awarding of the work of arranging display services at the QBR to A M Films, a little-known London-based company, to which a huge sum of money was allegedly transferred through the Royal Bank of Scotland.
The agency's initial probe, including leads from the RBI, has led the ED sleuths to gather more information about the source and various channels used to transfer money to the firm.
The Directorate is probing the CWG case for alleged violations under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).
