The Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) has begun investigation into the recent multi-crore scam and has lodged a First Information Report (FIR) in Srinagar.
JKCA chairman Mohd Aslam Goni said about Rs20-25 crore has been transferred to bogus accounts of JKCA.
“The then treasurer, Ahsan Mirza has accepted the responsibility for the shortfalls and has promised in writing to repay the same to JKCA,” said Goni who added that no arrests have been made.
However, some JKCA members feel that negligence on the part of the chairman could also be the cause.
“He (Goni) is the chairman of the finance committee and knows details of the funds coming from BCCI. He has to share the blame.
He is the one who has signed the past two audit reports,” said a member on condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, opposition leader Mehbooba Mufti has demanded FIR against Abdullah.
“They (JKCA and its management) are letting the big fish off the hook,” she said.
Farooq Abdullah, the JKCA president, said, “That person (Mirza) has admitted and he will have to make good the money.”
