The Goa Cricket Association were fined Rs 5,000 for fielding its chief Dayanand Narvekar's son in its under-15 team in violation of rules and allegedly on the basis of a forged birth certificate, documents have shown.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) chief administrative officer Ratnakar Shetty wrote to the GCA in 2008 indicting the association and its president Narvekar for illegally fielding his son Ganeshraj Narvekar in an under-15 state-level category, and levied a fine of Rs 5,000.

"We are surprised to see that you have allowed Ganeshraj Narvekar to play in the under-15 tournament in the season of 2007-08 under the name of Anish N. This is a clear violation of our rules and calls for punitive action," says Shetty's letter written April 25, 2008.

On Friday, GCA member Shekhar Salkar filed an FIR against Narvekar, his wife Sushma, son Ganeshraj and Dr. Ravindra Chodankar, accusing them of cheating and forging Ganeshraj's birth certificate to allow him to play.

Narvekar is also an accused in a fake ticket scam for an India-Australia ODI match in 2001.
